Akashi Meisei Japanese Blended Whisky
White Oak Distillery
Eigashima Distillery, located in Akashi City near Kobe, Japan, is both the country’s oldest and smallest whisky distillery, and perhaps its most mysterious as well. Founded in 1888, the distillery is best-known for its production of sake and shochu - two of Japan’s most popular spirits - and although technically able to produce whisky since 1919, Eigashima only began making whisky in 1984 when the company moved to its new “White Oak” facilities.
Whisky production at Eigashima Distillery takes place only two months out each year, with the rest of the time being devoted to sake and shochu production. This, combined with the fact that less than five employees handle all of Eigashima’s whisky production, makes the distillery’s signature Akashi White Oak Japanese Whisky some of the rarest in Japan, not to mention elsewhere around the world.
