Tenjaku was created to celebrate an appreciation for the local environment, nature’s gifts and expert craftsmanship.
Blended to be a smooth whisky that would suit any drinking style, either on the rocks, in a cocktail or served in traditional ‘Mizuwari’ style, Tenjaku will rise to all occasions.
Tenjaku is created in the city of Fuefuki , located in the eastern part of the Kofu Basin in Yamanashi Prefecture.
This fertile land encircled by soaring peaks, with the Chichibu mountains rising to the north and the Misaka range to the south, is renowned as Japan’s top peach and grape producing region.
Looking towards Mt. Fuji and the Southern Alps, it is a place blessed with boundless nature, with verdant forests, beautiful orchards, hot springs, and crystal clear streams.
Water can be said to be the “soul” of whisky. Fuefuki sits atop an alluvial fan system into which the excellent natural water from the Misaka mountain range flows.
It is from 250 meters below this land that pure underground water is drawn. Filtered through porous volcanic rock, it is perfect for dilution when creating blended whiskies.
Velvety smooth, slightly alkaline in nature. The moderate mineral content present in the water creates a whisky that is smooth and easy to drink and a well balanced flavour.
The much loved herald of spring in the East and West, and for this masterfully blended whisky. Like the clear, exquisite song of a small bird, it features an agreeably pure, mellow flavour. Carefully selected unprocessed whiskies and pure, natural spring water are expertly blended to create this distinctive whisky.
