Hakushu Story of the Distillery 2024 Edition Bottling Note

Nestled amidst the Southern Alps at a cool 700 meters, Hakushu Distillery (established in 1973) has always strived for harmony with nature, respecting all life in the surrounding forest. Their Single Malt Whisky, Hakushu Story of the Distillery 2024 Edition, is a unique bottle that unravels the distillery’s story and its meticulous whisky-making process.

This limited-edition 2024 design features the recently renovated distillery, symbolizing its commitment to both tradition and innovation as it steps into the future. The bottle itself reflects Hakushu’s signature green, while the label proudly showcases the renewed facility.

Inside, a carefully chosen vatting of malt whiskies, exclusively aged in bourbon barrels from smoky Hakushu malt, delivers a light and sweet smoky taste, a true embodiment of the Hakushu experience. These bourbon casks, known for imparting notes of vanilla, caramel, and a touch of sweetness, perfectly complement the smoky character of Hakushu malt, allowing you to savor the unique aroma and flavor nurtured in the forest environment.
