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 the final bottle from the Ichiro's "Card Series" from Hanyu distillery in Japan.
The coloured Joker contains a vatting of 14 casks distilled between 1985 and 2000 including a whisky matured in sherry butt, puncheon, hogshead, Cognac, chibidaru, Madeira hogshead and bourbon casks.
This is bottle number 1999 of only 3,690 bottles which were made available.
