The latest release and 4th volume of the Essence of Suntory range is here. It is one of the most unique pair of whiskies to be released from the brand. This new set includes 2x 500ml bottles - a Sakura Cask Finish from the Chita Distillery and Suntory's first ever Rice Whisky. 

Chita Distillery Sakura Cask Finish - 50%
This experimental and limited single malt was distilled at the Chita Distillery in 2000 before being aged for approximatley 15 years in white oak barrels. It was then transferred to Sakura casks (cherry blossom wood) for a three year finishing period.

Rice Whisky - 56%
This experimental and limited edition whisky is a unique development from Suntory, their first ever Rice Whisky. It was produced at the Osumi Sake Brewery, generally used for Sake and Shochu production. In stark contrast to many producers, they have not simply labelled shochu as whisky.  Instead, they have created a real, true rice whisky expression by using rice as the main ingredient, which was then saccharified with malt and fermented before being distilled.
