Shinshu Mars Distillery Maltage “Cosmo” Blended Malt Japanese Whisky (700ml)
High up in Miyata village on Kuyshu Island is the Shinshu distillery (aka “Mars”), founded in 1985 by Hombo Shuzo Ltd, a producer of shochu since 1872. Shinshu’s whisky is distilled only during the island’s harsh winters. In operation from 1985-1992 and then 2011 to present, this is actually Shuzo’s third domestic distillery. The previous have been the Yamanashi Distillery (1960-1969) and the Mars Kagoshima Distillery (1978-1984).
‘Cosmo’ (which refers to a mountain near the distillery), is a new label for this producer. A blended malt, bottled at 43%, composed of the distillery’s own spirit as well as Scotch malt whisky imported in bulk.
Aged in bourbon, sherry and American White Oak new casks, “Cosmo” blended malt whisky is named after a mountain in the Japan Central Alps close to the Mars Whisky Distillery.
