Hatozaki was named after the oldest stone lighthouse in Japan, a symbol of safety and guidance listed as a Historical Monument.
With a design strongly inspired by the delicate naturalistic art of the Edo era (1603-1868),
Hatozaki also incorporates a deep respect to the whisky of Scotland, the country that pioneered the spirit.
The work that goes on in Hatozaki cellars is a product of a masterful level of precision and understanding,
encompassing everything from the carefully selected spirits that form the structure of each blend.
The type of wood, history and char levels of each of our barrels.
the tailored design of our pot-stills; and the precise blending and ageing methods used by the expert team at the Kaikyо̄ Distillery.
