Chichibu Intergalactic Editions 2 x 70cl / with T-Shirt & Tote Bag

Chichibu distillery in Saitama, Japan was opened in 2008, and was the country’s first new distillery since Suntory opened Hakushu back in 1973. Chichibu was the brainchild of Ichiro Akuto, grandson of the founder of the legendary Hanyu distillery. The Ichiro’s Malt brand appeared in 2005 and rose to fame through the bottling of the last casks from Hanyu, particularly the sought after ‘Card’ series. The first Chichibu releases appeared under it in 2011.

Two striking releases from Chichibu, presented in this lot with a tote bag and XL T-Shirt. 

  • Chichibu 2012 Single Ex-Peated Bourbon Cask #2112 / Intergalactic Edition 1
    Third fill bourbon cask #2112 was selected as the first instalment of the Intergalactic Series, a 2019 single cask range from Chichibu.
    Edition 1 was distilled in 2012 and selected specially for Salud Distribution. The cask had previously held peated Chichibu single malt.
    One of 182 bottles, bottled at 63.5%.
