Chichibu

Chichibu

Chichibu is probably the closest Japan has to a craft Whisky distillery. Ichiro Akuto has just 14 employees and two small copper pot stills (designed by himself and made by Forsyths in Scotland). The eight, 3,000-litre washbacks—made from Hokkaido Mizunara oak—produce ten batches per week, resulting in approximately 60,000-litres of new-make. This is a drop in the ocean compared with Japan’s big players (to put it in perceptive, a single washback at Yamazaki can hold over 100,000-litres).
