MARS Maltage COSMO Malt Selection 70 cl / 43 % Japan

Behind the whiskey brand Mars is a long tradition in the spirits production. Founded in 1872, the family business Hombo Shuzo Co. originated in the very south of Japan, in Kagoshima, with the production of Shochu, a traditional Japanese brandy. At the beginning of 1950 they wanted to start distilling whiskey to expand the portfolio. However, the first batches distilled the company only ten years later in a newly built distillery in Yamanashi Prefecture, in the middle of the main island Honshu. However, this location was used only a few years to move the production facilities once again. New seat: the Shinshu distillery near Nagano where since 1985 the first Mars whiskey was produced.

The highest whiskey distillery in Japan, however, had to close its doors a few years later. Only with the growing interest and rising popularity of Whiskey from the Land of the Rising Sun did Hombo Shuzo Co. renovate the production facility. Since 2011, barrels of Mars whiskey have been refilled in the Shinshu Distillery.

With the Kasei the Shinshu Distillery created a light, flowery Blended Whiskey. For this purpose, they use their own distillates from the Shinshu distillery which mature in different barrels. These are complemented with Scottish "malt" and "Grain" whiskey. In the nose you can see fine aromas of ripe fruit which are supplemented with a hint of smoke.

Since 2016, the company has also distilled at a second location. On the site of the original production site of the Hombo Shuzo Co., in Kagoshima, a distillery was built in the image of the Shinshu Distillery. We look forward to seeing which whiskeys from this distillery will complement our portfolio over the next few years.
