A joint project started with the hope that Japan could also trade casks, which is common practice in Scotland, the birthplace of whisky. Chichibu and Mars started their joint bottling project in 2015. The very first exchange, therefore, took place in the utmost secrecy 6 years ago and the exchanged barrels were stored for ageing in their respective cellars. This is the first initiative of the Japanese whisky industry: to market blended malt whisky, which is made by combining malt whisky aged in the regions of each of the distilleries. This collaboration has therefore given birth to two 100% Japanese blended malts presented jointly by Kasuto Hombo and Ichiro Akuto, with Venture Whisky the “Ichiro’s Malt Double Distilleries 2021 Chichibu X Komagatake” and for Hombo Shuzo the “Mars Whisky Malt Duo Komagatake X Chichibu 2021”. Explore the possibilities of Japanese whisky and cross the borders of distilleries to discover delicious whiskies. With the ICHIRO’S MALT Double Distilleries 2021 CHICHIBU × KOMAGATAKE, discover the uniqueness of the Chichibu and Komagatake styles, harmonized together to perfection. Experience the sweetness and subtlety through an ocean of fruity aroma. The palate is gently invaded by a wave of flavours bringing complexity and smoothness. A light reduction with a drop of water will provide a voluptuous and delicate texture.

Founded in 2007 by Ichiro Akuto, grandson of the founder of the Hanyu distillery, Chichibu has been in business since February 2008. Consisting of two stills made to order in Scotland by Forsyth’s, it is not only the first Japanese single malt distillery since Hakushu, but it was also the smallest and most confidential. Beginning with the sale in 2008 of several very young whisky cuvées, the “newborn” range, Ichiro offered, from Whisky Live Paris 2011, his first “real” whisky, a three-year-old cask brut. Today the distillery bottles its own whiskies up to 12 years old for its Chichibu and Ichiro’s Malt range. The distillery also houses the last stocks of Karuizawa, Kawasaki and Hanyu.
