Nine Leaves Berta Wood Finish / K6 & Kask
Nine Leaves distillery is located in the Shiga prefecture on Honshu island in Japan. Japan does not have a long history of rum production, but founder, Yoshiharu Takeuchi, was able to draw on a wealth of whisky distilling experience to aid him with his new distillery in 2013, turning to Ichiro Akuto of Chichibu for council. On his advice, he ordered wash and spirit pot stills from Forsyths and stainless steel washbacks in the style of those at Glenfarclas in Speyside. The wash in question is unusual, being neither molasses nor pure cane juice, rather a solution of brown Muscovado sugar and water. The spirt is distilled twice before being aged in American and French oak casks.
This was finished in Berta wood and bottled for K6 and Liquor Shop Kask.
