From the House of Suntory, a mild, smooth single grain whisky with unparalleled sophistication and a clean, clear finish.

This is a light whisky, bright gold in colour, a nose of Crème brûlée, cardamom, acacia honey and blossoming rose.  The Palate is mild and smooth with a hint of mint, honey and spiced oak with subtle bittersweet notes.

Chita completes the single distillery trio (Yamazaki, Hakushu) that create the award-winning Hibiki blend, matured in the unique climate and nature conditions of Omi and Hakushu.  This the Chita distillery’s main expression, aged in wine and Spanish Oak sherry casks in addition to the American White Oak bourbon casks, resulting in a milder, yet complex flavour of grain whisky.

Country Of Origin: Japan

In 1972, Keizo Saji - Suntory's second Master Blender - took a momentous step forward in pursuing Shinjiro Torii's vision for diverse and truly Japanese whiskies blessed with the riches of Japanese nature and craftsmanship. On the misty, calm shores of Chita Peninsula, Keizo built a distillery dedicated to creating the highest-quality Japanese grain whisky.

Using mainly corn grain and a continuous multiple column distillation process, the Chita Distillery makes three types of grain whiskies. The heavy-type grain whisky is distilled through two columns, the medium-type through three columns, and the clean-type through four columns. This diversity is rare among grain whisky distillers as most only produce the heavy type.

Due to their exceptional smoothness and balance, Chita grain whiskies have traditionally been used as the dash or broth that enhances the harmony in Suntory's renowned blended whiskies. But through many years of research and innovation, the Chita Distillery's grain whiskies have achieved an unrivalled sophistication and complexity - culminating in The Chita Single Grain Whisky.

In Aichi Prefecture of the centre of Japan, Chita Peninsula and its surroundings are known for its history of craftsmanship in fermentation.

The Chita distillery, the inventive grain whisky distillery of the House of Suntory whisky, rises up surrounded by gently-sloping hilly terrain and the serene atmosphere from the sea.
