The Chita 70cl
Born in September 2015, Suntory Single Grain Whisky Chita is completely different from the ordinary grain whiskies used in blended whisky.
To imbue greater complexity and depth of flavour, Shinji Fukuyo chose to age Chita grain whisky in wine and Spanish Oak casks, in addition to American White Oak. The result is a milder, smoother grain whisky with unparalleled sophistication and a clean, clear finish.
Chita grain whiskies have traditionally been used as the 'dashi' or broth that enhances the harmony of Suntory blends. Through continuous research and innovation, Chita's grain whiskies have achieved an unrivaled sophistication and a level of complexity that lets them finally take center stage.
Shinji Fukuyo describes The Chita Single Grain Whisky as the “serenity of Japanese whisky.” Like the misty, calm seas of the Chita Peninsula on a day of elegant stillness, this airy whisky has a presence that is unmistakably serene.
"There is a quiet confidence and tenderness in our grain whiskies. These qualities allow them to be their own heroes, whether in a blend or featured as a single grain whisky."

Flavours on the nose of Crème brûlée, cardamom, acacia honey and blossoming rose. On the palate it is mild and smooth with hints of mint, and deep honey.
Serving Suggestion: Enjoy The Chita in a Japanese-style Highball - Fill a tall glass with ice and let it chill, pour in 35ml of Chita whisky and top up with soda (3- 4 parts soda to 1 part whisky) and stir. Add a twist of grapefruit or lemon citrus. The highball is a refreshing whisky drink, and the secret is not to overstir it so it doesn't lose its fizz. Also recommended is highball without ice, which lets you savour the whisky's flavour and sweetness more. Be sure to properly chill the glass, whisky, and soda first. For extra fragrance add lemon peel, which makes the flavour even more refreshing.
