Misty Shores and Gentle Slopes

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

Whisky Making at Chita

Suntory’s Chita distillery creates three types of grain whisky from corn: distinct from most distilleries which only produce one type. Aging in the unique climate and nature conditions of Omi and Hakushu, and the use of American White Oak casks, further contributes to the incredible range of flavors presented by Chita grain whiskies – only recently enabling the level of complexity and depth demanded by the prodigious standards of the House.
