The original Iwai pot stills from the 1960s have been retired and now stand outside the Mars Shinshu Distillery. Cajoled by the savory, almost gamey aromas assimilated with brown apple and old strawberries, the whisky is surprisingly candy sweet to the taste. Dark jellied fruits: first Rowntree’s Fruit Gums, then Fruit Pastilles. Hazelnut, gentle oriental spices, and chicory coffee usher in a deep, fruity finish with creamy chocolate and fresh mint. - Fall 2017

Country: Japan

For almost two thousand years, Japan has been producing high quality alcoholic drinks made from the ingredients available to them on their rich and fertile soils and mountainsides. The most popular and highly esteemed 'wines' of Japan are undoubtedly sake, a type of fermented rice wine, and the delicious, sweet and aromatic plum wines which are widely loved around the world. Both drinks are inextricably linked with Japanese cuisine and culture, and both are growing in popularity in the western world along with many other aspects of this amazing and unique country. Because of this boom in popularity over recent years, the sake and plum wine industry of Japan has remained strong, and it continues to be an industry steeped in tradition and many fascinating practices undertaken to keep quality at a high level.
