Shibui Japanese Whisky has launched in the United States, just in time for the holidays. The Japanese brand’s first range of offerings includes a collection of nine expressions with age statements up to 30 years old, sourced from four different Japanese distilleries across the provinces of Niigata and Okinawa.
Shibui Japanese Whisky is the only single brand range of Whiskies crafted from multiple award-winning Japanese Whisky distilleries. The team has worked to make innovation and transparency a foundation of their mission to bring the best aged Whisky statements to craft Whisky lovers and connoisseurs alike. With a motto of “We Don’t Distill, We Discover,” the Shibui team finds the best barrels of mature Japanese Whisky and shares them for the rest of the world to enjoy.
With over 1,400 world whiskies in their sample room, including hundreds of cask samples from the nosing team’s visits to Japan, their team has the experience and passion to ask the single most important question when they sample – is it Shibui-worthy?
