Japanese Whisky, New Arrivals -

Available to pre-order from today.

Buckle up, because this is quite a ride. Shirakawa distillery is not a familiar name to most whisky fans - even Japanese whisky fans. The distillery was founded in the Fukushima Prefecture north of Tokyo in 1939 by Daikoku Budoshu, a subsidiary of the Takara Shuzo company, and only made Japanese single malt whisky for a brief period that began in 1951 and ended in 1969....

New Arrivals, Raasay -

Great news - it’s nearly time for the next release of single malt whisky from the Isle of Raasay distillery: Isle of Raasay R-02!  The tiny Hebridean island of Raasay (with a population of just 161 hardy souls) is home to an even tinier, eponymous distillery that began production in September 2017 and released its first ever single malt - Isle of Raasay Inaugural - at the end of last year. Isle of Raasay’s first widely-available single malt whisky for the general public - the snappily-titled Isle of Raasay R-01 - was only released a few months ago and despite...
