In 1972 Suntory decided to create his first grain whiskey. He named it honoring the Japanese peninsula Chita . And to create it, they continued with the classic Japanese style : looking for the perfect maturation. The recipe is a creation of Keizo Saji , Suntory’s second Master Blender, who was inspired to follow the vision of Shinjiro Torii . The idea, create a whiskey that reflects the Japanese craftsmanship and nature. To this end, Keizo created the Chita distillery on the coast of the homonymous peninsula. The distillery uses corn grain and a continuous distillation process with multiple columns . Thus, they create the three different types of grain whiskey that will give rise to The Chita. On the one hand, it produces a strong grain spirits distilled in two columns . Then a medium grain spirits distilled through three columns . Finally, the spirits softer, distilled through four columns. Some of these whiskeys are intended for the production of Suntory blends. The Chita grows old in three different types of barrel . On the one hand, American oak bourbon barrels . It also uses Spanish oak barrels and European oak barrels that have contained wine. Shinji Fukuyo , Suntory’s fourth Chief Blender, describes The Chita as a great whiskey, rested and quiet. The serenity of Japanese whiskey as the misty and calm sea of ​​the Chita peninsula on a day of elegant stillness.
