Chichibu 2012 Single Bourbon Cask #2012 / Intergalactic Edition 3

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.

This is the third edition from the Intergalactic series. The whisky was distilled in 2012 and bottled from first fill Bourbon cask #2012 in 2020 (erroneously stated as 2019 on the label).

The bottle is also accompanied by a COVID-19 style branded facemask.

One of 164 bottles made available exclusively through Salud Distribution of the Netherlands.
