Precious Liquors and Kivnelle Trading Collaborates On Shizuoka Bottling



Independent bottler and retailer Precious Liquors and Kivnelle Trading have collaborated on a new Shizuoka bottling, a 4 Year Old ex-Bourbon Pot Still K expression.

"Japanese single malt whisky has risen to iconic status, much like Japanese cars, within the realm of luxury and craftsmanship. Renowned for their meticulous attention to detail and pursuit of perfection, Japanese car manufacturers have long been celebrated for their innovative designs and exceptional engineering.

Similarly, Japanese single malt whisky distilleries exhibit a similar dedication to the craft, treating the production process with utmost care and precision. The intricate artistry showcased in the creation of Japanese single malt whisky mirrors the finesse displayed in the construction of Japanese cars.

The Japanese car Toyota 2000GT holds a special place in the hearts of car enthusiasts worldwide, and it's as iconic as the famous silent Karuizawa Distillery in Japan which equipment was used to create this remarkable whisky. Shizuoka Distillery has a bright future ahead to become an icon of Japanese whisky producers in near future."
