Chichibu distillery is a small distillery with only nine full-time employees. The distillery is owned by Venture whisky, which was founded in 2004 in Chichibu city, Saitama, just outside of Tokyo (hence its name).
This particular offering from Ichiro’s Range was exclusively bottled for the HBA 2016. Distilled in 2010 and aged in Hogshead cask type before being bottled in 2016, only 328 bottles were ever released. As with everything else from the Chichibu distillery, it comes highly recommended.
