Located on the Seto Inland Sea in the Hiroshima region, the distillery in operation since 2018 unveils its very first whisky: Sakurao Single Malt Cask Strength First Release.
Distilled, aged and blended in Japan, this 100% Japanese single malt already foreshadows the signature whiskies of the young distillery with a rich and complex profile diffusing fruity notes of ripe grape, citrus and bitter chocolate from the opening. During the tasting, vanilla aromas are added to spicy, woody and smoky notes that last until the finish.
Neither colored nor chill-filtered, Sakurao Single Malt Cask Strength First Release is a limited edition slightly reduced to 54% in order to preserve the power of its aromatic palette. The blend consists of a combination of bourbon, new American oak and sherry casks, which in addition to maturing for 3 years in the distillery's cellars, has benefited from several months of maturation in mizunara casks, the famous Japanese oak casks.
Product limited to 1 bottles per order.

The distillery Sakurao Distillery
Although the Sakurao Distillery is new to the Japanese whisky distilleries circle, it can draw on the experience of its founder, the Chugoku Jozo house with whom we have worked for years. Renowned for being teeming with natural wonders, it was in Hiroshima Prefecture that she naturally settled down.
