Relatively rare, this mixture of Japanese and foreign-made malt and grain whisky uses Scottish barley and pure water from the same source Eigashima Distillery uses to make saké. Matured in bourbon and sherry casks, its notes of toffee, oak, vanilla and nuts support a fruity and citrus character.
Akashi is the official whisky from the Japanese White Oak distillery. As suggested by the name, the distillery is located in the small city of Akashi, south of the main island and a few miles away from Kobe. White Oak was the first Japanese distillery to be granted a proper whisky distillation license, backin 1919. A beautiful and typical Japanese blend made from 30% malted barley and 70% grain, matured in American oak casks for five years (three in Hogsheads and two in white oak barrels). Pleasant freshness and spices with almost sugary, fruity aromas. Vibrant and powerful on the palate, woody notes lead the way to tasty dried fruits. An expression you can enjoy both neat and mixed.
