Tasting Notes

At 2600 feet, Shinshu Mars is the world's highest-altitude distillery, nestled between Japan's Southern and Central Alps. The cool temps and granite-filtered, snowmelt aquifers create pristine conditions for whisky making. Elliot Faber describes in JamesSuckling.com the unique effects of this site on its spirits: "Because of this high altitude, the boiling point of water (and alcohol) is actually lower than its corresponding boiling point at sea level. As a result, making spirits at this distillery is particularly special and subtle characteristics that would be lost at sea level are preserved. The boring name for the process is atmospheric distillation, and while this is often simulated to produce industry-grade crude oil, it happens naturally right here in Miyata village at 2,600 feet!"
