Fukano Distillery has been making spirits in Japan since 1823. Shigeruriku Fukano is the fifth generation of his family to run the distillery, located in Hitoyoshi City, Kumamoto Prefecture of Japan, a few towns away from Ohishi Distillery. Kuma River is the water supply for both distilleries, and both have the minerality and texture we have come to know and love.
Fukano Whisky 2018 Edition is a limited edition of 5,055 bottles. It is made up of 8 used European oak casks and 3 refill sherry casks. This vatting of casks was put together to showcase how diverse and creamy the Fukano Whisky can be, and is a combination of malted and un-malted rice distilled in a pot still. The weight of this whisky covers the palate with a silky texture expressing creme brûlée and butterscotch. The finish is a unique combination of vanilla and umami that lasts long after your final sip.
