AKKESHI DISTILLERY

Message to All Japanese Whisky Fans

A crucial factor in determining the flavour of whisky is the environment in which it ages.
We selected Akkeshi, Hokkaido, in the rural north of Japan,
in the belief that it provides an ideal environment to produce the profile we are seeking.
Thick, salty fog from the sea. Pure, clean air. Rich peat deposits. Abundant nature.
And the final ingredient that goes into our new, unprecedented Japanese whisky: the passion of a group of whisky devotees.
Whisky made according to traditional Scottish methods, but with the unique flavour of Akkeshi.
We believe the taste will be worth the wait.
