Founded in 1823, Fukano Distillery is situated in Hitoyoshi City, of the Kumamoto Prefecture of Japan on the island of Kyushu. Nestled in the Kyushu mountains, Hitoyoshi is renown for its pure water and unadulterated nature.
Most known for producing shōchū —a traditional Japanese spirit made from rice— Hitoyoshi is in its fifth generation of Fukano’s, now run by Shigeruriku Fukano. Fukano whisky is distilled from a combination of both malted and un-malted rice and passed through stainless steel still.
Rice doesn’t require copper stills during production, due to its sulfur-free nature. It is a clean distillate. Distilled to a low proof, the resultant spirit, technically a shochu is then transferred to new charred oak barrels and matured in a warehouse
These limited-run whiskies are rare, with only a few casks bottled each year. Aged in new, charred oak barrels before being bottled from a single barrel. This exquisite Japanese whisky earned 90 points as Whisky Advocates Top 20 whiskies of 2017.

About Japanese Whisky
Although maybe not be the first Spirit you would think of when Japan is mentioned; the Japanese make one of the best types of whisky in the world. It’s heavily influenced by scotch but with smoother and delicate notes.
The history of the Japanese whisky is not even a century old, but in this short time, the Japanese blended and single malts have taken over the world by storm and can easily go against their whisk(e)y counterparts from across the globe.
Bold fruit, lychee, ripe peach, candied tart notes, watermelon, allspice, and white pepper. Raspberry notes are followed by peach, nectarines, rhubarb, and custard candy, stewed fruits, red berries, and a hint of citrus.
