Peaty Okinawa-born, Rum-inspired delight
 
On a paradise island of Okinawa, halfway between the mainland and Taiwan, a distillery was established in 1961. Eight years later it became known as Helios, named after the Greek Sun god. Their philosophy has always been producing fine Spirits from locally grown ingredients, whether it’s Rum, Spirits or Liqueurs. Their main products are Rum and Awamori (a sort of Indica rice Shochu), but under the radar, they also produce premium Whisky.
 
Kura the Whisky ("kura" means a storehouse) is one of the most unique Japanese Whiskies, whose life begins in peat marshes of Hokkaido (very similar to Scotland). Heavily peated Spirit then joins other Okinawa Single Malts in a careful blend after it spends years in American oak casks. Then, the blend is finished in used Japanese Rum barrels. The result is a splendid balance between mossy Hokkaido peat and spicy Okinawa Rum. It’s a pure Japanese potion, no monkey business of importing and sneakiness.
