Mars Single Malt Selection
Published on: September 19, 2022

Mars Whisky is one of our premium whisky brands, and its Shinshu Distillery was built in the Nagano prefecture and run by Mr Kiichiro Iwai. Iwai was responsible for the design of their pot stills and is considered a pioneer in the history and development of pot still whisky in Japan. He is one of only four Japanese individuals listed in the Top 100 Most Influential People in the history of whisky making in the world.

Mars Whisky opened their 2nd distillery in the Kagoshima prefecture – Tsunuki Distillery in 2017, and also has an ageing facility on the island called Yakushima which is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. While Mars Whisky is considered one of the Top 3 Japanese whisky brands, they are still extraordinarily humble and call themselves artisan whisky makers. We love their gentle, smooth and clean sweet style of whisky.
