On the nose, Yuza 2019 offers barley and yeast aromas intermingling with fruity notes of kumquat, while a subtle touch of leather adds a further dimension to this complex olfactory palette. On the palate, the fruity vivacity unfolds brilliantly, offering juicy orange flavors and chocolatey sweetness that delight the taste buds. The intense, expressive finish leaves a lasting impression, reminding us of the richness and depth of this exceptional whisky.

The Yuza distillery is a jewel nestled between mountains and sea, benefiting from a unique marine and mountain environment. Originally founded by nine sake brewers, its heritage is reflected in an unwavering commitment to quality and time, values that permeate every drop of its whisky. Despite its youth, the distillery stands out for its rare and precious approach, producing few bottlings, with a particular emphasis on bourbon cask-aged malts, although this special edition exceptionally opts for sherry casks.

Yuza whiskies embody the very essence of Japanese craftsmanship, combining tradition and innovation to create a truly memorable tasting experience. Each sip reveals a new chapter in the history of this promising young distillery, inviting whisky lovers to explore and savor every nuance.

Product limited to 1 bottles per order.

The distillery

The distillery Yuza Distillery

Founded in 2017 in the city of Yuza, it's the first and only whisky distillery in Yamagata Prefecture. Based near Mount Chokai, the distillery enjoys a climate where the snow is regularly exposed to sea breezes, creating a favorable combination for an abundant source of cold, pure water obviously crucial in crafting the distillery's whiskies. .

Created by Kinryu Corporation, the distillery inherits the spirit of the nine sake brewers who founded the company. A spirit that is expressed through the concept of TLAS for "Tiny, Lovely, Authentic and Supreme". The distillery is indeed particularly small and pretty but with the ambition to create authentic whiskies of "supreme" quality.

Operational since 2018, the distillery produces only strictly Japanese whiskies, in accordance with the criteria established by the Japan Spirits & Liqueurs Makers Association, and in limited quantities. Their first single malt has been released in 2022 and is already promising with a first award collected at the International Spirit Challenge in San Francisco 2022 (gold medal).
