Father's Day is June 16

Taisetsu “The Great Snowfall” is the ninth release in Akkeshi’s "Twenty Four Season Series"; reflecting a time when the days are shortest, the mountains are covered in snow, and animals have begun their winter slumber. Malt-forward with notes of prune, sticky fig, earthy dried apricot, smoky leather and black tea. With Akkeshi no season disappoints!

Akkeshi Distillery is fairly new to the whisky scene and has made waves with their highly limited small format new-make releases. They have moved away from imported ingredients, sourcing locally as much as possible. They use 100% locally grown peat in their single malts and as much local barley as they can. The distillery itself is also constructed to emulate the climate and terroir of Islay.
