Bottled Japanese honesty.

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 Agashi, 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 has 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.

The beautiful Akashi Blended Whisky is the purest incarnation of Japanese distilling tradition, their precision, honesty, and that perfect sea-side climate with its salty air and huge temperature differences between seasons. Lightly peated, copper-pot distilled, and matured in ex-Bourbon, Shochu, and virgin oak casks, it's a balanced, fruity, and approachable Spirit. In other words ― it's the perfect entry point into the wonderful world of Japanese Whisky.

The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan and major rivals are Nikka and Suntory.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Japanese Whisky is connected both to Scotch and Bourbon. It’s a Scotch-style Spirit that’s matured in climates similar to Kentucky’s.
In recent years, Japanese Whiskies have won several top prizes at the World Whisky Awards and have consistently scored higher than Scotch Whiskies in blind tastings. Talk about a student surpassing the master!
The Highball brought Japanese Whisky back to life. Aside from some attention from overseas, Japanese Whisky consumption domestically was very low during the better part of the early 2000s. It wasn’t until 2008, when Suntory launched the Highball campaign featuring their Kakubin Whisky that things kicked off.
Japanese Single Malts, like Scotch, are double-distilled in pot stills. Grain Whiskies, on the other hand, are distilled in column stills.
