CHITA Whisky. Chita is the serenity of Japanese whisky, from the inventive grain whisky distillery in the Chita Peninsula dedicated to the pursuit of making diverse grain whiskies. Through a rare continuous distillation process using two, three or four columns, the Chita Distillery mainly creates three types of grain whisky—clean, medium, and heavy. These whiskies have been aged in a variety of casks before coming together to produce the Chita Single Grain Whisky. Sublimely smooth, versatile, and complex with subtle sweetness, Chita is embraced as the innovation single grain Japanese whisky from the award-winning House of Suntory Whisky.
The Chita distillery is located in Aichi prefecture, right in the center of Japan. The distillery is surrounded by gently-sloping hilly terrain and the serene atmosphere of the sea. Unlike most grain whisky distillers that only produce one type of grain, the Chita Distillery prides itself in the artisanship and diversity of making, using mainly corn grain and a continuous multiple column distillation process that allows for three types of grain whiskies.
The artisanship and diversity of making at the Chita grain distillery has allowed the House of Suntory to rely on the exceptional smoothness and balance of its grain whiskies. A critical foundation for all its prestigious blends. With many years of research and innovation, the Chita Distillery’s grain whiskies have achieved an unrivaled sophistication and complexity that have allowed the introduction of the Chita Single Grain Whisky.
