Thick, salty fog from the sea. Pure, clean air. Rich peat deposits.
We began distilling in 2016 in Akkeshi, Hokkaido, in the rural north of Japan,
in the belief that it would provide an ideal environment to produce the profile of the new, unprecedented Japanese whisky we are seeking.
In the midst of Japan's beautiful northern wilderness, maturation proceeds day-by-day.
The first Akkeshi Distillery was introduced in February 2018.
We released Akkeshi New Born "Foundations 1",
a vatted blend of non-peated malts matured for 5-14 months in bourbon casks.
In August 2018, we released our first peatedwhisky, AkkeshiNew Born "Foundations 2".
In March 2019, we released our first ever product to utilisethe extremely rare MizunaraCask Maturation, AkkeshiNew Born "Foundations 3".
Then, in August 2019, we released a malt and grain blended whisky
as the final product in our New Born Foundation Series, Akkeshi New Born "Foundations 4".
