Hanyu 1990 - 2007 Single Cask No. 9511
This Single Cask malt whisky is from the Hanyu distillery, that was located in a town bearing its name on the banks of the Tone River. The distillery was surrounded by barley and paddy fields. Hanyu was making malt whisky in the traditional Scottish way but unfortunately stopped distilling in 2000.
The pot-stills and other whisky equipment were completely dismantled in 2004 because of a change of ownership. Fortunately, the stock and facilities were saved by Ichiro, the grandson of the founders of the Hanyu distillery. His new distillery is now situated on the hill of Chichibu, where he was born. He started making whisky again on February 2008.
Distilled in 1990, matured in a Bourbon hogshead with a Japanese Oak finish and bottled in 2007. Imported to the UK from The Number One Drinks Company Ltd.
