Sunday's Whisky

An authentically Japanese, world blend whisky that expands the universe of whisky lovers & Japanophiles.

Sunday’s Whisky is crafted in small batches and made from world grain spirits that is distilled twice and barrel aged 3-9 years at cask strength. The whisky is blended before adding the pristine, alkaline water from the nearby springs of Koriyama. The result is a more round, viscous mouth feel with soft, slightly sweet undertones.

Japan elevates everything to an art form. The same can be said for the Japanese highball and Sunday’s Whisky was made with a highball in mind as it doesn’t dilute on the rocks or in cocktails. A subtle, underlying sweetness and citrus aroma of Sunday’s combined with the salty edge of a hard, mineral soda water creates a more balanced highball than other whisky and soda combinations.

Sunday’s is the answer for retail-driven, at-home whisky drinkers or restaurants expanding a Whisky list with a bottle that demystifies the experience of Japanese whisky - all the quality with a brand that is approachable and modern.

Tasting Notes

On the nose aromas of yuzu, sugar snap pea and apple cider donut. The palate shows notes of cocoa, fresh mint, and waffle with a rounded mouthfeel, in part from the soft water source. The finish showcases more sweet baking spice notes with pink peppercorn and barley.

Cocktail Suggestions

Sunday’s Whisky was crafted specifically to be the perfect base of a simple highball. The water of Koriyama and the surrounding area is soft and the result is a round, full-bodied texture that dilutes evenly in a highball or cocktail and bonds to accents such as lemon twists or orange peels.

Tech Details

Sunday’s Whisky is aged 3-9 years at cask strength in mostly ex-bourbon casks, with some whisky being aged in port, sherry, and wine casks to allow Yamaguchi-san to perfect the blend utilizing the varying flavors that each cask has imparted. The diurnal temperature shifts of Koriyama allow the casks to expand and contract to accelerate the process of aging. The whisky is then blended before adding the pristine, alkaline water from the nearby springs of Koriyama.
