Frequently Asked Questions

Which is the best Whisky from Japan?

What makes Japanese Whiskey different?

Japanese Whisky relies heavily on malted barley that’s mashed and distilled twice in pot stills, yielding more residual congeners. Other grain Whiskies may be blended in if it’s a single malt, like Scotch. Japanese Whisky is wood-aged, sometimes in American oak, sometimes in Sherry casks, and sometimes in Japanese Mizunara oak, which imparts unique characteristics.
