The Chita Suntory whisky
is made as ‘Dashi’, a special Japanese broth used across The House of Suntory Whisky’s range and is designed to enhance the balance and harmony of the blend. Previously only available in Japan, it is now available here due to increased demand Japanese whisky.
A bright gold whisky with notes of cardamom, acacia honey and blossoming rose, The Chita is described as mild and smooth on the palate with a clean finish offering subtle bittersweet hints of spiced oak. “Best enjoyed in a traditional Japanese highball with soda, The Chita will add a deep honeyed flavour to the signature serve,” the company explains.
Bottled at 43% ABV in a typical Suntory’s shaped bottle, The Chita is a real tribute to the expertise of the grain distillery whose name in traditional Japanese calligraphy is now, like the other distilleries of the group, proudly displayed on the label.
Founded in 1972 in Aichi Prefecture, the Chita distillery located near the village of the same name, extends over an area of about 50,000 m², and is exclusively dedicated to the grain whisky distillation.
