In 2020 the whisky was bottled a staggering 56.1% ABV. The resulting spirit was deemed extraordinary to the extent that the team behind East Asia Whisky Company decided to include it in the prestigious Japan Series

Rainforest Alliance Certified Rosewood
This release comes with a custom gift box and presentation case that was designed with laser-etched Bamboo leaves and branches in the box against the backdrop of a flowing river. The rosewoods used are so dense that they are commonly used for musical instruments due to their gorgeous characteristics that vary from violet to dark red to brown with frequent dark stripes and pronounced figure. Pure copper on the hinges adds a special detail that elevates the look and feel of this release.
