A Japanese Whisky with a serious Sherry finishing.

Japan is a magical land, protected by the ocean, far away from everything we know and even understand. Solitude means purity. The purity of water, earth, and sky. Solitude also means purity of Spirit. Eigashima Distillery, located in the town of Akashi, just a stone’s throw away from Kobe Bay, is molded by these elements. Here, a couple of feet from the ocean, the owner’s family have been making Spirits for centuries. Eigashima Shuzo also holds Japan’s first Whisky license, issued all the way back in 1919, but to this day remains one of the country’s smallest Whisky producers. Quality over quantity is the motto. This is where we speak the same language.

Because even though some particularities remain lost in translation, we recognize quality when we see it. You see, Akashi Whisky is something special. The current copper pot stills were pressed into service a couple of decades ago, and that’s when focus on premium Whiskies began. Since this is the closest Whisky distillery to the coast, the ocean-laden air is reflected in the Whisky’s savory, saline driven purity. The impact of the local climate makes it a unique atmosphere to mature Whisky, with huge temperature differences between seasons. Nothing is left to chance. The distillery dedicates its whole meticulous production process to make the smoothest, most sippable Spirit possible. Worthy of its name and tradition. If you’re looking for a gateway into the wonderful world of Japanese Whisky, this would be a good place to start.

Akashi Sherry Cask Finish Japanese Blend Whisky was drawn from a single barrel. Barrel No. 61071, to be precise. This wonderfully unique Japanese Whisky was aged for 5 years in a Sherry cask. No wonder it developed such an intense fruity nose and a juicy palate, packed with vanilla, almonds, and dried fruits. The finish, on the other hand, is super delicate. This offering is non-colored and non-chill filtered, which means all its aromatic richness remains. Savor it neat or with a few drops of water.
