Founded in 1823, Fukano Distillery is located in Hitoyoshi City, of the Kumamoto Prefecture of Japan on the island of Kyushu. Hitoyoshi is surrounded by mountains and is known for its pure water and nature. Shigeruriku Fukano is the fifth generation of his family to run the distillery. They use a combination of malted and un-malted rice to make their whisky in a pot still. These releases are very limited in nature and only a few casks are bottled each year. 

This latest edition of Fukano Whisky has been expertly finished in a combination of refilled White Oak, Manzanilla Sherry, and French red wine casks. We get notes of tart plum, cherry blossom, toffee, cocoa powder, and a fresh rain-like minerality.
