A lesser-known whisky outside the local Japanese market, this Akashi blend is specially produced for the European market using a mixture of Japanese and foreign-made malt and grain whisky (the bottling for the home market uses molasses spirit).
Pleasant freshness and spices with almost sugary, fruity aromas. Vibrant and powerful on the palate, woody notes lead the way to tasty dried fruits making this easy-to-drink whisky ideal for the entry-level drinker and excellent in cocktails.
About the distillery:
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, and was the first Japanese distillery to be granted a proper whisky distillation license, back in 1919. A family-run, craft distillery since its very first batch, White Oak also stays true to its roots, reinforcing its long-lasting traditions of Sake and Shochu production. Whisky distillation takes place once a year over a four-month period from April to July. A new distillery using Scottish methods was built in 1984 and double distillation takes place in traditional copper pot stills.
