Kumano Whisky Mizunara is a pure malt whisky blend of specially selected Japanese whisky (ex French Oak cask) and Scottish whiskies (ex Bourbon cask) . These whiskies are married and finished in Japanese Oak (Mizunara) casks.
The Kishu Kumano distillery is nestled in the mountains of Wakayama, Japan, alongside the famed pilgrimage trail, Kumano Kodo. The carefully crafted whisky rests in Mizunara casks amidst the forests and mountains of remote Japan. The cask and terroir impart an unique flavour and “forest feel” to the whisky.
