For nearly three centuries, Ichiro Akuto's family brewed sake along the banks of the Tone River in central Japan. Following the end of World War II, his family received a distiller's license and purchased two second-hand stills from a Scottish distillery. By the turn of the century, however, his father had made the difficult decision to dismantle the stills and sell the 400 casks of remaining whisky that were still maturing in the distillery's rickhouses. Fueled by a belief in the potential for Japanese single malts, Ichiro purchased the casks from his father. Also, Ichiro began studying distillation techniques at Benriach and Springbank Distillery, before returning to Japan and constructing a state-of-the-art distillery in Chichibu. Ichiro's Malt & Grain is blended by the king of independent Japanese distillers: Ichiro Akuto. Ichiro’s blend is a worldwide blended whisky in every sense of the word, a marriage of whiskies from Ichiro’s very own young malt & grain whisky stock, and whiskies from eight other distilleries in Scotland, Canada, England, Ireland and the U.S., which founder Ichiro Akuto refers to as, “the big five.” These international whiskies tend to mature more quickly than the whiskies aging in the cool climate of mountainous Japan, which gives this blend incredible character. This whisky is clean on the nose with notes of fruit, vanilla and oak. Pick up your bottle today!
