A refreshing and revitalising whisky, Hakushu single malt whisky is produced in one of the world’s only mountain distilleries. Its unique energising character is gained due to the natural spring water that is used in the production process, sourced directly from the Southern Alps in Japan that surround this scenic distillery. As a result, Hakushu is infused with an aromatic, original, yet subtly smoky flavour that can only be gained from its wonderfully natural origins.
Distillery locations don’t come much more serene and secluded than that of Suntory Hakushu. Dropped into the vast, untouched forests of the Southern Japanese Alps and overlooked by Mount Kaikomagatake, this single malt whisky encapsulates the calming surroundings of its home with each and every sip.
This expressive Japanese whisky is as vibrant and clean as its homeland, featuring fresh herbaceous flavours that make Hakushu whisky incredibly easy-drinking and one that you’ll find yourself coming back to time and time again.
On the nose, you’ll experience plenty of juicy grapefruit as well as light cucumber, followed by a bouquet of spearmint and fragrant pine. Moving onto the palate, you’ll again enjoy notes of mint and fresh fruit finished by a hit of smokiness that offsets and completes the otherwise fresh and clean flavours perfectly. Here at The Whisky World, you’ll discover a selection of Suntory Hakushu that we implore anybody to add to their prized whisky collection.
