The third whisky to come out of Shizuoka distillery, Contact S is made with a combination of whisky from its ex-Karuizawa pot still and its wood-fired pot still, and matured for three years in first-fill bourbon and quarter casks. Aromas of apple juice, ripe mangoes, cream, caramel and buttered toast fill the nose, complemented by notes of rich tea biscuits, stewed apples, croissants, caramel, sea salt, dark chocolate and black tea throughout the palate.
The annual Mid-Autumn Festival also known as the Moon Festival is celebrated on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month. “May we live long and share the beauty of the moon together, even if we are hundreds of miles apart.” -Su Shi (Song Dynasty Poem)
The Goddess Chang’E sips her immortal tea elixir and floats up to the moon. We celebrate her beauty and vibrant health during the Moon Festival. However, beauty and health are long-lasting when we enjoy delicious Chinese teas.
