Chichibu 2015 Single Chibidaru Cask #5472 / Shinanoya 15th Anniversary
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.
The Tree In The Forest is a single cask private bottling of Chichibu bottled by Akuto Ichiro exclusively for the Shinanoya store, Japan, for their 15th anniversary.
Distilled in 2015 and laid to rest in refill quarter cask #5472 before being bottled in 2022.
One of 132 bottles.
