FUKANO DISTILLERY, 12-YEAR SINGLE CASK NO. 60 JAPANESE WHISKY

 

KYUSHU, JAPAN

 

 

With Japanese whisky at peak popularity and given the resounding success of our previous Fukano offer, we’ve been on the lookout for more spectacular Japanese whiskies from this distillery, one of Japan’s hottest producers. After Fukano’s limited 2017 Edition was recognized as one of Whiskey Advocate’s top whiskies of 2017—the only Japanese whisky to make the list—demand quickly skyrocketed for this historic property and their list of accolades keeps growing. As such, we jumped at the opportunity to work with the distillery to select a 12-Year Single Cask No. 60 for our customers today. Only 426 bottles were produced of this decadent, rich whisky, aged in new charred American oak and bottled at full strength with no chill filtration. The whisky is reminiscent of Bourbon, with notes of sweet cream, brown sugar, and baking spice. For one week, or until sold out, you can collect this Japanese whisky rarity with special Concierge pricing sub-$95! 

 

Founded in 1823, the whiskies of Fukano Distillery have been called quintessentially Japanese and “the most uniquely superlative spirits currently being exported to the U.S.” (Bloomberg). Located in Hitoyoshi City on the island of Kyushu, the distillery is surrounded by mountains known for its pure water source, where widely fluctuating temperatures are ideal for slow fermentation which allow for refreshing and complex aromas and flavors. Family owned and operated, Shigeruriku Fukano is the fifth generation of his family to run the distillery, and uses traditional Japanese grains and methods to produce yearly limited offerings—just a few casks are bottled each year. Their whiskies use a combination of malted and un-malted locally grown grains that are typically matured in new charred oak barrels, which are then matured on the property in a warehouse resembling a traditional Scottish dunnage. As the distillery does not have enough stock to allow for one single continuous release, each whisky from Fukano is limited and a true artistic innovation year to year—making each bottling a collector’s item. Don’t hesitate in adding today’s single cask release to your library today!
