Founded in 1862 as a sake brewery, the late President of the Kura in the early 1950s had a goal to diversify the product range to encompass other alcoholic beverages.
In 1953, they obtained a whisky distilling license and have over the years, embarked on various whisky distilling projects. 500 bottles of this whisky, aged 23 years, were released in 2013 and it's been increasingly difficult to land a bottle of this rare spirit, even in Japan.
Distilled using imported British malt and aged in used American white oak, this is a 59% cask strength single malt.
