Suntory's second Distillery Hakushu (opened in 1973) is situated in the midst of the deepest woods of the Japanese southern alps at the feet of the Mt Kaikomagatake and is probably one of the highest lain in the world. It is commonly known as "The Forest Distillery". Established with the aim of developing new types of distilled spirit. There is a special microclimate here.
The cold, moist weather inside the vast forest of Hakushu, and the water from the renowned Ojira River, rated among Japan's finest, is of a rare purity and softness by filtration of rain and snow by thousand year old granite stones, help to create as uperior whisky at a slow, leisurly pace.
