Umiki World’s First Ocean Fused Whisky Brand is a stunning combination of the natural elements that symbolize coastal Japan. The name Umiki is a combination of two words – “umi” meaning ocean and “ki” meaning tree. These two elements find their expression in Umiki whisky which blends pure desalinated ocean water with Japanese malts from coastal distilleries and imported grain whiskies. This blend is then aged in Japanese pine barrels. On the nose you’ll find honey, cereal, sandalwood and straw. The palate is where the pine barrel displays its impact, with mint and cinnamon combining with notes of pine sap. The finish brings round two of the sandalwood and a delightful dry woodiness.
