A luxe and voluptuous expression full of dark chocolate, cashews, and stone fruit. The deeply satisfying salinity of this drink is thanks to the seaside air of Akashi – we get salted caramels and a touch of rich soy sauce. This is a perfect candidate for complex sipping.
Eigashima Shuzo, famed for its sake since the Edo period (1603-1868), is one of Japan's oldest whisky distilleries. The first to obtain their distillery license in 1919, they began making shochu and other spirits. Since 1984, they have been producing Akashi whiskies at their White Oak facility in the seaside town of Akashi, near Kobe. Today, they continue to produce sake, umeshu, whisky.
