Collection Nagahama - Japanese Whiskey

Nagahama may be Japan's smallest distillery, at around 26 square meters, but it plays its role well, as part of a new generation of distilleries popping up all over Japan.

Since Nagahama was founded in 2016, the distillery team has launched some very interesting new spirits. Nagahama's most recent release was a lightly peated single malt.

Along with the first bottlings of the new brand, mini casks were also made and sold, allowing fans to age the whiskey themselves in a matter of weeks. These casks were made from American oak and charred like the regular casks.

Spelling Nagahama backwards gives Amahagan, the name chosen by Nagahama Distillery for their experiments in blending.
