Bamboo Charcoal Filtered Whiskey


In the European market, Suntory has recently launched, Hibiki 12-year old whiskey, aged in Umeshu (Japanese plum liquer) casks, and filtered through premium bamboo charcoal.

Filtered with Japanese bamboo charcoal, which purifies the water and enhances the flavor, the Hibiki premium-blended whiskey range has received 15 gold medals, as well as the 2007 and 2008 title of “The World’s Best Blended Whisky” for the 30-year-old aged whiskey. Hibiki is scheduled to be launched in the U.S. in October 2009.

Bamboo charcoal (activated carbon) also purifies, neutralizes, and deodorizes air in the home, absorbs moisture and humidity, releases negative ions in to the air, cleans and softens water for drinking and laundry, and exfoliates and removes impurities from the skin when used in bodycare and soap products!

  1. Forget the yerba mate – send me some whiskey!!! Love the post, Bambooya – very interesting.

    • Well, we could always put some bamboo charcoal whiskey IN our yerba mate…but only after 5:00! Perhaps that might defeat the healthful benefits of the tea…but it might be worth a try! haha! Thanks for the comment Mindaboo!
