A clean, smooth, and balanced Japanese whisky. We enjoy soft florals, subtle stonefruit and spice, yellow cake, and stunning cream aromas in this blend aged in ex-bourbon and sherry casks.
The Asagi Madara butterfly as seen on the label is commonly found in the village in Nagano where Mars Shinshu Distillery is located.
Mars Shinshu Distillery has the highest altitude of all the distilleries in Japan. Situated in Nagano (the Japanese Alps, where the newest season of Terrace House is filmed) at an elevation of over 2600 feet, the temperature drops to 5°F. With fresh, ample snowfall, Mars Shinshu Distillery is situated in an ideal place for whisky production.
