Story: Eigashima Shuzo is one of Japan's oldest family-run distilleries with centuries of beverage making experience. Situated just a stone's throw away from Osaka Bay in the fishing village of Akashi, the distillery enjoys a warm, coastal climate all year round. The operation is now run by its ninth generation, recently hiring their 7th full-time employee.
Due to Eigashima’s coastal climate, Akashi whiskies impart a unique briny quality that is especially apparent in the Akashi Single Malt. Aged approximately 5-8 years in ex-Bourbon, sherry, brandy and barley casks, this whisky's prominent notes of salted caramel and subtle peat boasts a long, buttery finish. 46% ABV
Salted caramel, yellow apple, brown sugar, angelica fruits, mild peat.
