Hanyu 1991, 18 Year Old Single Cask 370
No 1 Drinks Company
The Hanyu distillery was located in the town bearing its name on the banks of the Tone River. Surrounded by barley and paddy fields, Hanyu was making malt whisky in the traditional Scottish way until 2000.
The pot stills and other equipment were saved by Ichiro Akuto, the grandson of the founders of the original distillery. He continues to distil and has been bottling the last precious casks, for which he has been awarded many accolades, both in Japan and overseas.
