Akashi White Oak Blended Whisky

50cl / 40%

A Japanese blended whisky that has been the subject of some controversy. The bottling for the home market in Japan is made with malt whisky and molasses spirit, which would not be classed as ‘whisky’ in the EU. This export version, however, is made from malt and grain whiskies.

History of Akashi – Eigashima Shuzo

Eigashima Shuzo (known as White Oak Distillery in Japan) is one of Japan’s oldest family-run distilleries with centuries of beverage making experience. Situated just a stone throw’s away from Osaka Bay in the fishing village of Akashi, the distillery enjoys a warm, coastal climate all year round, seeing the highest average temperatures and lowest annual rainfall out of all the Japanese distilleries. The operation is now run by its ninth generation. Starting as a sake brewery during the Edo period, Eigashima Distillery has since expanded it’s repertoire to include shochu, whisky, wine, umeshu (plum wine), and mirin. Eigashima obtained the nation’s first whisky license in 1919, however they did not begin official production until small copper pot stills were installed in the early 1960s.

Due to the small nature of the company, Eigashima dedicates certain seasons to distill their various spirits as the different liquors are produced by the same group of people. As of 2017, Eigashima’s production remains small, producing 48,000L a year with their two warehouses holding about 1,000 casks. “With Honesty” is the company’s motto that is rooted in Eigashima’s tradition and craftsmanship throughout the centuries. The renowned micro-distillery’s dedication is the epitome of Japanese artistry, showing uncompromising standards for each drop of their beautiful products.
