Perched in the Southern Japanese Alps, Hakushu is, at over 700 meters above sea level, one of the loftiest malt whisky distilleries in the world.(Scotland’s highest distilleries are Dalwhinnie and Braeval, both about 355 meters.) It takes its water from beneath Kai-Komagatake (Pony Mountain).
Opened by Suntory in 1973 to help meet Japan’s huge thirst for whisky, its 12 stills are known for making single malts with a clean, playful taste, with sweet fruity flavours often balanced by well controlled peppery or aniseed tastes.
