Eigashima Shuzo

Eigashima Distillery is located near to the city of Kobe, west of Osaka. The distillery was founded in 1888, to produce Sake and Shochu. In 1919 the distillery acquired a license for Whisky production. A new still house was constructed and the old one was converted into a warehouse.

The new Whisky was named White Oak. Until 1990, the distillery was open for just one month out the year, due to high liquor taxes in Japan. The first single malt was produced in 2007. Until then all of the Whisky released from the distillery were blends.

There are 2 pot stills and 4 washbacks in the facility. The location has very intense climate conditions, causing them to lose generous amount every year, during maturation.
