“UMIKI – Ocean Fused Whisky From The Heart of Japanese Pine” by Yoshino Spirits Co.
Osaka, JAPAN, 20th March 2020– Yoshino Spirits Co. has added UMIKI Whisky – “World’s First Ocean Fused Whisky” to its portfolio, initially available in North American, Asian markets in April and rest global markets after May and onwards.
The ocean is known as the source of life and the ever-green pine tree is known as the symbol of life in Japan.
To honor the life-giving ocean and the long-living pine tree that graces the coasts of Japan, filtered desalinated ocean-water from depths of Pacific ocean is blended with Japanese ocean-side distilled malt whiskies and grain whiskies in reserve after the curation is finished in Japanese Pine barrels.
This unique production process gives UMIKI its name; whereby UMI means OCEAN and KI means TREE in Japanese.
UMIKI is “World’s first Japanese Pine barrel aged whisky” and “World’s first ocean water fused whisky that uses only renewable water source for blending”
This sustainable process brings an exceptional smoothness with sea-breeze on the nose, rounded floral taste on the palate and a soothing freshness in the finish to UMIKI.
UMIKI has already picked up awards, winning Double Gold Awarded from China Wine & Spirits Awards 2020 and Gold Medal from World Spirits Award 2020.
