Chita, this Single Grain whisky from Suntory (the original producers of Japanese Whisky) celebrates the quality of the grains that go into award-winning blends like the Hibiki. A true masterclass of elegance and subtle sweetness in a style made for innovators, connoisseurs and new whisky drinkers. Distilled through a unique, patented system besides the sea, Chita is matured in the unique climate and nature conditions of Omi and Hakushu. Ageing in Bordeaux and Spanish Oak casks, in addition to American White Oak, results in a more complex yet delicate flavour of grain whisky.

In 1972,on the misty, calm shores of Chita penninsula, Keizo Saji—Suntory's second Master Blender-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.

Features

The first single grain whisky from the House of Suntory, Mild, smooth and elegant with a clean, clear finish

Further Description

The history of Japanese whisky is the history of Shinjiro Torii, the founder of Suntory.

In 1923, Shinjiro Torii envisioned a whisky filled with the essence of Japanese nature and hand-crafted by artisans through a patient process of enhancing the work of nature.
He dreamt of creating subtle, refined, yet complex whisky that would suit the delicate palate of the Japanese and enhance their dining experience.
Though initially inspired by traditional Scottish whisky, Torii envisioned a Japanese approach by choosing a terrain and climate completely different from those of Scotland.
Torii chose the region of Yamazaki, on the outskirts of Kyoto as the birthplace of Japanese whisky.

Recipes

A chilled highball beautifully brings out the inherent flavour and fullness of whisky. It also sets off the taste of various foods.

Enjoy The Chita in a Japanese-style Highball - Fill a tall glass with ice and let it chill, pour in 35ml of Chita whisky and top up with soda (3- 4 parts soda to 1 part whisky) and stir. Add a twist of grapefruit or lemon citrus. Enjoy!

Tips for enhancing your drinking pleasure

The highball is a refreshing whisky drink, and the secret is not to overstir it so it doesn't lose its fizz. Also recommended is highball without ice, which lets you savour the whisky's flavour and sweetness more. Be sure to properly chill the glass, whisky, and soda first. For extra fragrance add lemon peel, which makes the flavour even more refreshing.
