Product Description

The Kaikyo Distillery (named after the Akashi-Kaikyo bridge that lies at the foot of the distillery) is located near Akashi, a city located in southern Hyōgo Prefecture, Japan, on the Seto Inland Sea west of Kobe.  The Yonesawa family have been distilling since 1917 but it was a century later that whisky production was first initiated.

Hatozaki, the whisky produced by the distillery is named after a nearby lighthouse (the oldest stone lighthouse in Japan).  Producing a blended whisky and a pure malt whisky, they're a blend of Japanese distilled whisky and imported malt and grain.

The pure malt is 100% malt whisky matured in imported bourbon casks, imported sherry casks and indigenous Mizunara casks.  The whisky is rich with malt, dried fruit and cereal notes.  The finish is slightly smokey and honeyed.
