Hinotori Japanese Blended Whisky


The small Japanese distillery Hinotori – which means “phoenix” – was founded in 1949.

This blend of grain and malt whiskies is matured in Japanese Mizunara oak casks. It is bottled without chill filtration and without colouring. Seductive golden sparkling amber; dried fruit and roasted nuts on the palate.

The very rare wood of the Mizunara oak provides notes of vanilla and coconut, but at the same time releases very little tannin. The tree grows extremely slowly; for its wood to be suitable for barrels, it should be 200 years old. Its irregular growth also means that the wood is difficult to extract. Accordingly, Mizunara barrels have their price.
