Whisky Maltage Cosmo

The Mars Maltage Cosmo is a connoisseur’s whiskey; it is a blended malt resulting from the blending of local malts from the Mars Shinshu distillery and a batch of single malts of Scottish origin.

Its uniqueness lies precisely in the particular geographical area in which the distillery is located, situated at an altitude of 800 meters in the foothills of the Japanese Alps, the harsh climate and the presence of sources of very pure water filtered from the mountains ensure a very slow maturation that benefits the aromatic qualities of this whiskey.

AROMA: delicate and intense with fruity notes mingling with fresh, floral scents.

TASTE: Reminiscent of honey and caramel flavors that anticipate a smoky finish.

GRADATION: Alcohol 43 %vol.

The Saburomaru distillery was built in 1952 on the premises of Wakatsuru Shuzo, established in 1862.
It produces Japanese sake in winter and distills whiskey in summer. For this reason, annual production is limited to about 25 barrels; but he has produced our original whiskey using heavily peated malt that has a long tradition.

“There is a village called Junenmyo near the Saburomaru distillery. In the past, the village had a large rapeseed field and people made lamp oil. We named this blended whiskey ‘Junenmyo’ in honor of this story, hoping it will always warm your heart like a gentle lamp light.”
