The Nobushi “The Spirit of Honor” is based on leading and venerating a disciplined life based on values, the absence of fear, and a deep respect for oneself, others and one’s surroundings. These emblematic warriors managed to pro-mulgate their philosophy with honour and even to influence modernity long after the end of their era. Nobushi is a blended whiskey that is made following an artisanal process and using a magnificent combination of whiskeys from the Miyagi and Nagano prefectures. These spirits are later mixed and aged for 3 to 4 years in American oak casks in the village of Kiyoka-wa, a name meaning “pure river,” which is located between east Tokyo and the impressive area around Mount Tanzawa to the west.
