WHISKY MAKING AT HAKUSHU

The water and environment at the Hakushu distillery is vastly different to that of the Yamazaki® distillery; as is the creation process. At fermentation, artisannal craftsmen use solely wooden washbacks to encourage maturation by retaining heat in the cool air at the distillery.
