It started three centuries ago when the first of Ichiro Akuto’s forefathers began making alcoholic beverages in the countryside of Saitama, Japan. His grandfather opened the now legendary Hanyu Distillery in the mid-1940s and began making malt whiskies that thrived right alongside the Japanese economic boom of the 1980s.

However, when the economic bubble burst in the 1990s, so too did the first Japanese whisky boom, leading Hanyu Distillery and many others to close their doors indefinitely. Order now

Ichiro saved his grandfathers’ last remaining whisky casks and slowly released them in a variety of bottlings, to a surprisingly cold reception.  His final release, The Playing Card Series, is now legendary with individual bottles being considered the unicorns of the Japanese whisky world.

With this success, Ichiro saw that the revival of artisan Japanese whisky was imminent and opened his own distillery in the beautiful Chichibu region two hours west of Tokyo.  Uniquely, Chichibu Distillery also built its own cooperage and floor malting facility on site.  The distillery is also the only in the world to use 100% Mizunara Japanese oak washbacks which creates the distinctly fruitier Ichiro’s Malt style of whisky.

All of this coupled with continuing to mark heads and tails by the nose and tasting DAILY rather than timed measurements adds to the illustrious status of this small yet impactful distillery.
