Akashi whisky is the only whisky in the world that is made by a Toji (sake master) by implementing sake-making methodologies into the whisky-making process.
The pot stil used is smaller than those used by both Scottish and other Japanese distilleries, which in turn, decreases the levels of fusel alcohol. As a result, the White Oak Akashi Toji Malt & Grain Japanese Whisky does not require as long of an aging process, while its core malt (cask strength) is smooth and delicate.
Located in the city of Akashi in the Hyogo Prefecture, by the seaside of the Seto Island Sea is the White Oak Distillery. This distillery was founded in 1888 by Eigashima Shuzo and has been producing Sake and Shochu ever since. In 1919, Eigashima Shuzo obtained a license to manufacture whisky and when the company moved to their current facilities in 1984, the White Oak Distillery was born.
