Sexy Fish bottles own Chichibu Japanese whisky

London restaurant Sexy Fish and Speciality Drinks have worked together on an own-label bottling of Chichibu whisky from Japan.

The single cask bottling (an ex-Chassagne Montrachet Pinot Noir cask) has produced just 254 bottles which will be available at the restaurant from this week as part of a revamped Japanese whisky menu.

With over 400 Japanese whiskies on offer and following a visit to the distillery last October, the Caprice Holdings’ director of bars, Xavier Landais, wanted an exclusive for the Mayfair restaurant.

Landais said: “Having our own Sexy Fish whisky was the next logical step, and what a whisky! From the legendary distillery Chichibu, we could not have dreamt of a better dram. Pink peppercorn, strawberry, coffee. Super sexy really. Thanks to Ichiro Akuto and Speciality Drinks for making a dream come true.”

Speciality Drinks’ creative director, Raj Chavda, explained that he drew on the restaurant’s aquatic theem for the label design.

The whisky is available at Sexy Fish for £30 per 50ml.
