In the town of Akashi not far away from Kobe lies Japan's only distillery situated close to the sea. Eigashima Shuzo was established in 1679 and it is one of the oldest family-owned distilleries in Japan. Eigashima was making sake and shochu as early as in 1888 and in 1919, it was the first Japanese distillery to obtain a whisky license. Even though Eigashima was a pioneer in its field in Japan, it remained a small distillery with only 7 full time employees working there today. In the pristine nature of Kobe Bay, they're proud of their clean air and water and they value quality over quantity. Their 9th generation leader Mr. Hiraishi leads the company with a simple motto – honesty.

Due to the proximity to the sea, their whisky is influenced by the salty air and by extreme temperature differences between seasons. Akashi Blended Whisky is made with Japanese precision. A malt and grain blend, it was aged in ex-bourbon, shochu and virgin oak casks and it's lightly peated. Distilled in copper pot stills that have been in operation for several decades, it's bottled at 80 proof and features fruity aromas and a clean and easy palate with a touch of peat on the finish. This is a classic Japanese whisky that represents Japanese values – precision, craftmanship and tradition.
