Hakushu 12YO 700ml
The Hakushu Distillery has been known as the 'Mountain Forest Distillery’ as it quietly stands amidst fresh streams and lush forests. Built with the notion, 'coexisting with nature,' a bird sanctuary was set up to help preserve the wildlife. It is said that over 50 types of birds can be seen at the distillery throughout the year. By preserving the natural environment around, Suntory is essentially preserving the pristine water that goes into creating the whisky. The water used for HAKUSHU passes through granite layers in the Southern Alps of Mount Kaikomagatake, offering a rare softness and purity to it. Based on an experiment carried out at the YAMAZAKI research facility, Hakushu’s water is what allows for the smooth and subtle aroma of the malt whisky.
