The Ichiro’s Malt team at Venture Whisky Company gives amazing access to their distillery, even stating there are no secrets to their whisky-making. The tour, hosted by Yumi Yoshikawa, is fantastic, with access to much of the facility, even a grove of mizunara (Japanese oak) trees they are growing.
The distillery is small but perfectly formed, with much of the production in one large room.
Ichiro’s Malt uses a range of casks including ex-bourbon from Heaven Hill and Wild Turkey. Plenty of inventory, ready to be sent to distributors and liquor stores, where they will probably sell out within a couple of days.
is there someone whom i can email to with regards to visiting the distillery. From what i’ve read, they don’t do tours.
Making my way to japan soon, would be great if you could provide me with more info. Thanks!
