The laborious natural aging is proof of the power of unblended whiskey and the skills of the chief brewer.
At Ikegame, we call the method of storage without artificial filtration after atmospheric distillation “natural aging”.
It is a classic aging method that is very labor intensive and is rarely used today.
In order to perform natural aging, the unblended whiskey must have power and the toji's ability to discern the maturation is required.
