Description

Description: The first single grain whisky from the House of Suntory. Mild, smooth and elegant with a clean, clear finish. Born in September 2015, Suntory Single Grain Whisky Chita is completely different from the ordinary grain whiskies used in blended whisky. To imbue greater complexity and depth of flavour, Shinji Fukuyo chose to age Chita grain whisky in wine and Spanish Oak casks, in addition to American White Oak. The result is a milder, smoother grain whisky with unparalleled sophistication and a clean, clear finish. Chita grain whiskies have traditionally been used as the ‘dashi’ or broth that enhances the harmony of Suntory blends. Through continuous research and innovation, Chita’s grain whiskies have achieved an unrivaled sophistication and a level of complexity that lets them finally take center stage. Flavours on the nose of Crème brûlée, cardamom, acacia honey and blossoming rose. On the palate it is mild and smooth with hints of mint, and deep honey. Shinji Fukuyo describes The Chita Single Grain Whisky as the “serenity of Japanese whisky.” Like the misty, calm seas of the Chita Peninsula on a day of elegant stillness, this airy whisky has a presence that is unmistakably serene. “There is a quiet confidence and tenderness in our grain whiskies. These qualities allow them to be their own heroes, whether in a blend or featured as a single grain whisky.” In 1972,on the misty, calm shores of Chita penninsula, Keizo Saji—Suntory’s second Master Blender-built a distillery dedicated to creating the highest quality Japanese grain whisky. Using mainly corn grain and a continuous multiple column distillation process, the Chita Distillery makes three types of grain whiskies. The heavy-type grain whisky is distilled through two columns, the medium-type through three columns, and the clean-type through four columns. This diversity is rare among grain whisky distillers as most only produce the heavy type. The history of Japanese whisky is the history of Shinjiro Torii, the founder of Suntory. In 1923, Shinjiro Torii envisioned a whisky filled with the essence of Japanese nature and hand-crafted by artisans through a patient process of enhancing the work of nature. He dreamt of creating subtle, refined, yet complex whisky that would suit the delicate palate of the Japanese and enhance their dining experience. Though initially inspired by traditional Scottish whisky, Torii envisioned a Japanese approach by choosing a terrain and climate completely different from those of Scotland. Torii chose the region of Yamazaki, on the outskirts of Kyoto as the birthplace of Japanese whisky., Manufacturer: Edrington Beam Suntory, 191 West George Street, Glasgow, G2 2LD., Recycling: Packing Recyclable
