Chita 2001 Wine Cask Finish 50cl / The Essence of Suntory
A single grain addition to The Essence of Suntory Whisky series.
This is a Chita distilled in 2001 and finished for 4 years in a wine cask before being bottled in 2018.
The Chita grain distillery was opened in 1972, and was Suntory’s second distillery. Previously its malt and grain had been produced at Yamazaki, but Chita was tasked with sole responsibility for the latter during the company’s expansions that decade, which saw its second malt distillery, Hakushu, opened the following year. Although it is primarily tasked with the provision of Suntory blends, The Chita single grain brand was launched in 2015.
