Owned by Venture Whisky, Chichibu is a small distillery located in Chichibu, a city in Japan’s Saitama Prefecture, about 100 kilometres from Tokyo. Founded in 2004, it was the first new Japanese distillery since the 1970's. Production began in 2008 under the watchful eye of Ichiro Akuto, distillery owner, manager and Master Distiller who is also the grandson of the founder of the now-closed Hanyu distillery. A portion of the barley Chichibu uses is grown locally, and they use a wide selection of cask styles to mature the whisky. Chichibu is a very hands-on distillery with very small production, and their limited releases are much sought after around the world.
