Akashi White Oak Blended Whisky: A Fusion of Tradition and Innovation

Unveiling the Toji Mastery in Whisky Craftsmanship

Discover the unparalleled artistry behind Akashi White Oak Blended Whisky, a unique libation crafted by a Toji, a grand-master in the traditional Japanese art of sake making. This distinctive approach infuses the whisky-making process with time-honored sake methodologies, setting Akashi apart as the only whisky in the world to bear this prestigious distinction.

Small Pot, Big Impact: The Distillation Process

The use of a smaller distil pot distinguishes Akashi from both Scottish and other Japanese distilleries. This meticulous choice reduces fusel alcohol levels, eliminating the need for an extended aging process. The result is a core malt (cask strength) that embodies unparalleled smoothness and delicacy.

Maturation Journey: From Shochu to Bourbon to Sherry

Akashi White Oak Blended Whisky embarks on a 5-year maturation journey, starting in Japanese Shochu casks made of American White Oak for 3 years. Following this, it matures in ex-bourbon casks, imparting additional layers of flavor. The grand finale occurs during the last 2 years, as the whisky refines its character in ex-sherry casks. Thus achieving a harmonious balance of nuanced notes.
