A brand-new venture, Shiki Distillery is located in the Hyogo Prefecture, just northwest of Osaka, Japan. Famous for its pristine nature, waters and mountains, the region is also the home of the best rice wine in Japan, Yamada Nishiki. Like many distilleries just starting out and preparing to distill their own spirits, Shiki Distillery began by curating and blending spirits from other producers – the best of Japan. Offering a collection of aged and unaged malt whiskies as well as blended whisky, the Four Seasons expressions are their first releases. The word “Shiki” means “four seasons” in Japanese and the four whiskies are intended to reflect the character of four seasons in Japan.
In Japan, the rainy season lasts from May to mid-July and the level of humidity is high even when it’s not raining as the temperature rises. In the south, the rainy season starts earlier than in the north – when the rain stops, real summer heat begins. Shunka Shuto Summer Japanese Blended Whisky is aged in white oak barrels and bottled at 80 proof. Designed to taste like warm summer days, this magnificent whisky blend delivers a specific flavor profile of summer florals, fruits and vanilla flavors.

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.
Medium amber color. A warm nose with aromas of vanilla and orchard fruits. The palate begins with vanilla and develops flavors of apricot, fruits and distinct oak. The finish is medium long, warm and oaky.
