About the distillery
Hanyu distillery was owned by Toa-Shuzo in Saitama prefecture, north of Tokyo. It stopped distilling in 2000, and their stock was handed over to Ichiro Akuto, the grandson of the founder, who established a new company called Venture Whisky. The last remaining stocks of Hanyu whisky can sometimes be found in the market today, sold under the “Ichiro’s Malt” label.
This fantastic 15 year old release from Akuto Ichiro was distilled in 1995 and bottled in 2010.
The Hanyu distillery ceased production in 2000, and has become increasingly popular at auction taking pride of place next to Karuizawa as the most sought after Japanese whiskies. There were only 17 years of production at Hanyu so stocks are limited and scarce.
