Chichibu IPA Cask Finish | Bot. 2017
A limited-edition Chichibu, developed in conjunction with a Japanese craft brewer. The brewery aged their beers in casks from the distillery and then returned these ‘beer-washed’ barrels to Chichibu, where they were filled with whisky for a period of extra maturation. The hop characteristics from the IPA are discernible on the palate, where they are joined by honey and lemon flavours. The finish has a bitter grapefruit quality, alongside a distinctive twist of sansho pepper.
