Founded in 1823, Fukano Distillery is located in Hitoyoshi City, of the Kumamoto Prefecture of Japan on the island of Kyushu. Fukano was the first distillery in the Kumamoto region to mature its shochu in barrels, a novel practice spearheaded by Chizuru Fukano, the mother of current distillery president Seiichi Fukano. It’s this post-distillation wood aging that turns the fresh shochu into something more accurately classified as whisky.
This small batch release of Fukano Whisky was created in collaboration with Women Who Whiskey to celebrate the career of Chizuru Fukano. This collaboration with the international Women Who Whiskey club is a sessionable sipper with complexity and backbone that would also work well in a refreshing cocktail. Only 3000 bottles were produced.
