MARS 2013 Le Papillon Gifucho 58%

Single Malt Whisky, Japan / Honshu - Nagano, 70cl, Ref: 56621

Quantity limited to 1 bottle(s) by client.

Avec cette nouvelle édition de la série Mars Le Papillon, Mars met une fois encore à l’honneur son pays d’origine, le Japon. Cette fois, nous retrouvons le Luehdorfia Japonica, aussi connu sous le nom de Gifu, une espèce vivant uniquement au pays du soleil levant. Distillé à Shinshu, le fût #1698 est un fût de chêne blanc américain ayant vieilli 5 ans à dans les chais de la distillerie, à 800 mètres d’altitude. En résulte un whisky aux notes fraîches et herbacées de menthe, dont la gourmandise en bouche est supplantée d’une texture légèrement huileuse.

The brand

The brand

Located in Japan, the Mars distillery has a rather unusual, turbulent history. Its founder is none other than Kiichiro Iwai, the man who instigated the departure for Scotland of the renowned Masataka Taketsuru and more importantly the owner of a spirit company that produces shochu (Japanese eau de vie). The Shinshu Mars distillery is situated in an exceptional location that affords a truly unique whisky. Located at an altitude of 800 metres, in a region that has a particularly harsh climate, the distillery benefits from pure spring water filtered over centuries by the mountains. Another remarkable feature of this distillery is that it only produces whisky during the winter months. The fall in demand during the eighties forced the distillery to close down in 1992, but it was reopened in 2011. It was only natural then that the first whisky to be made in the new stills be called ‘The Revival 2011’.
