Hanyu 2000 Ichiro's Malt 'The Game' #360 Sample / Shinanoya 5th Anniversary
Since its stills were turned off in 2000, Hanyu has become one of Japan's most sought after single malts. An economic recession at the turn of the millennium forced the distillery to shut its doors, and the remaining casks of its unblended whisky stock were purchased by Venture Whisky, a firm established by the Hanyu distillery founder's grandson, Ichiro Akuto, in 2004. In 2005 he bottled his first single casks under the Ichiro's Malt label.
This is an exclusive bottling from Japanese food and spirits importer, Shinanoya. This limited release was produced within their acclaimed "The Game" series which contains Hanyu from the final year that the distillery was producing, bottled in 2012.
Bottle number 193 of 309.
