Chichibu’s Whisky Distillery.
Ichiro Akuto started planning the Chichibu distillery in 2007. After selecting the site and in keeping with a local tradition. To bring good luck and fortune. A Shinto priest needs to bless the ground upon which the distillery is to be built.
The distillery equipment came from Scotland. With the exception of the mash tun that came from a local brewery. The bottling plant and warehouse completed in rapid time and production of whisky started in the Spring of 2008.
