This small distillery started producing whisky in 2016. It produces single malt whisky, but also blends carefully selected whisky purchased from overseas and ages it in Nagahama’s climate. Mt. Ibuki takes on a different character with each season. The capacity of the primary distillery pot is 1,000 liters, and the residual distiller is 500 liters, the smallest pots in Japan. Heating method is indirect by steam. The name of the still is “Aranbic”. Named from the Arabian appearance.

An ode to fruit, mainly orange and grapefruit, but also interleaved with apple and some more tropical hints. Butter biscuits with vanilla suggestions. Round and mellow, soft.


Very coherent with nose, centered on mellow citrus and apple notes, with strawberry jam, never unbalanced or acidic. Medium sweetness, brown sugar. ABV is very nicely chosen, perfect for an easy drink but also to enjoy the tastes.


Short-medium, clean and again based on orange, tangerine and red fruit, with a gentle dryness.

Amahagan Edition N.5 Sherry Cask Finish is a very well crafted product, with a refined texture mainly representing variations on fruit, yellow and red, with citrus inclinations. The nose is quite complete and high-quality, the palate adds some creaminess on top. The overall profile is very well-balanced and a very enjoyable experience, with a velvety texture.
