A joint project started with the hope that Japan could also trade casks, which is common practice in Scotland, the birthplace of whiskey. Chichibu and Mars started their joint bottling project in 2015. The very first exchange therefore took place in the utmost secrecy 6 years ago and the exchanged barrels were stored for aging in their respective cellars. This is the first initiative of the Japanese whiskey industry: to market blended malt whiskey, which is made by combining malt whiskey aged in the regions of each of the distilleries. This collaboration has therefore given birth to two 100% Japanese blended malts presented jointly by Kasuto Hombo and Ichiro Akuto, with Venture Whiskey the “Ichiro's Malt Double Distilleries 2021 Chichibu X Komagatake” and for Hombo Shuzo the “Mars Whiskey Malt Duo Komagatake X Chichibu 2021”. Explore the possibilities of Japanese whiskey and cross the borders of distilleries to discover delicious whiskeys.
