THE BRAND

Nine Leaves is a micro distillery in Otsu located in Shiga Prefecture, near Kyoto, on the shores of Lake Biwa. Founded in 2013 by Yoshiharu Takeuchi after two years of work and after learning the distillation techniques of the Chichibu distillery, can count on two stills built by the Scottish Forsyths.

Yoshiharu Takeuchi is a descendant of an important Japanese family and the symbol on the labels of his rums, consisting of nine bamboo leaves, represents the family crest, from which the name "nine leaves" derives.

 

THE BOTTLER

Velier was founded by the Chaix family in Genova in 1947 as a small traditional company specialised in the importation and distribution of wines, champagnes and spirits. In 1983, a young Luca Gargano, former brand ambassador for Saint James at that time, acquired shares in Velier. Under his influence the company began spacialising in the importation of outstanding spirits exclusively destinated to the Italian market. By the early 90s Luca heard about a legendary stock of Saint James rum dating back probably to 1885 and bottled in 1952. After a complex negotiation, he finally managed to acquire the entire stock. This was only the first of a list of legendary selections to come in the following years.



Please note: Due to the various ages of bottles and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion and no claim can be lodged against failure/leakage in transit. Please ensure that you undertake close up viewing/inspection prior to placing any bid.
