Hanyu was a successful distillery that unfortunately had to shut down in 2000, but the spirits that remained at the distillery were rescued and continue to be released today. This special Hanyu 2000 Single Cask #63 whisky was matured in a hogshead cask and bottled in 2015 for the La Maison Du Whisky retailer. Only 300 bottles have ever been released for this Hanyu dram, making this a rare collectible for your own whisky bar! The label on the bottle features a work of art called “Double Lines” by the creator, Tay Bak Chang.
Hanyu Distillery was established by the Akuto family and named after the town it settled in. Ichiro Akuto, owner of Chichibu Distillery and Venture Whisky Ltd., was able to retrieve the remaining stock after the distillery shut down. Hanyu’s exquisite and treasured drams are a must-have for any Japanese whisky collector!
