The heart and soul of the Chichibu Distillery in Japan is Ichiro Akuto. He is the owner, Distillery Manager and Master Distiller. Chichibu distillery was founded in 2008 by Ichiro and will extend his family’s history of sake and shochu production since the 17th century. But his passion and know-how in whisky production were directly transmitted to him by his grandfather, the founder in 1941 of the legendary Hanyu distillery (now closed) and whose last casks are stored and bottled in Chichibu.
