Hatozaki Small Batch Japanese Whisky
The Yonezawa family’s experimentation with distilling started over a century ago, in 1917, and has been part of their legacy ever since. In the build-up to their celebration of 100 years of spirit production, the company decided to replace their old stills with new copper twin pot-stills made by the famous Scottish company Forsyth’s. The new facility has been designed to produce Japanese Single Malt Whisky as well as other spirits and has been named The Kaikyo Distillery after the Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge that lies in front of the distillery.
The Small Batch bottling is a vatting of 100% malt whiskies which have been aged in imported bourbon casks, imported sherry casks and native Mizunara oak barrels. Rich profile of sweet cereals and malty dried fruit with a light touch of smoke and honey on the finish. Bottled at 40% abv.
