A shining gem of a Whisky from a hidden place.

Suntory virtually defines the beverage business in Japan. Founded in 1899 to import and distribute wine, they quickly branched out into their own products. Then, in 1923, they stepped into the nearly sacrilegious effort of distilling a Single Malt Whisky in Japan. Since then, Suntory has expanded through home grown brands and the acquisition of established business around the world. They produce dozens of Whiskeys, Beers, Liqueurs, and soft drinks that span the globe.

Suntory owns and operates dozens of distilleries. But the Chita Distillery is perhaps their most secretive. We do know a few things though. It is their "grain" distillery — meaning that it is used for making whole grain (non-malted) Spirits from wheat, rye, and some barley. We also know that nearly all of its production goes into Suntory blends — especially some of their higher-priced, premium offerings. But Suntory The Chita Single Grain Whisky is the first stand-alone Whisky that reflects the true nature of this hidden, exotic place. And it is a savory, sweet, and lovely place indeed.


Smartass Corner:
Suntory really tries to keep this distillery away from public view. In fact, it was reported that when a local Whisky blogger in Japan was making a map of all the distilleries in Japan, an executive at Suntory called and asked him to keep Chita off the map.
