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.
A variety of pot stills and casks are carefully chosen to suit the high elevation and climate of Hakushu, ultimately producing an array of single malt whiskies with a variety of characters that reflect its surroundings.
The main components of the Hakushu Single Malt:
- Aged American White Oak
- Heavily peated whisky
- Lightly peated whisky
