In 2022 The Last Drop Distillers released their first Japanese whisky, something they had long sought, which was matured in an ex-Sherry cask.

However, alongside that cask, they also acquired another a cask of the same exceptional 20-40 year old blended malt whisky, but this one matured in a Mizunara cask.

Known for imparting distinctive and delicious flavors to the whisky within, Mizunara is also a challenging wood: the tress must be at least 200 years old before they can be harvested, and the wood is prone to distortion. Never-the-less distillers and blenders consider it worth the challenge.

This 100% Japanese-distilled whisky marries 20-to-40 year old malts from the beginning and the end of the short life of the Hanyu Distillery, which opened in 1980 and closed its gates in the year 2000.

Those iconic whiskies have then been blended with other singular mars from across me panoply Japanese distilleries to create a truly exceptional expression.
