The White Oak distillery is perhaps the least known of Japan’s whisky producers, but it has a legitimate claim to be the country’s oldest with a license to make whisky granted in 1919 — four years before Yamazaki was built. It's located in the city of Akashi in Hyogo Prefecture, west of Kobe, facing the Seto Inland Sea. The distillery was founded by Eigashima Shuzo in 1888 to produce sake. Eigashima Shuzo obtained a license to manufacture whisky in 1919, but it was when the company moved to their current facilities in 1984 that White Oak distillery was born.
White Oak’s whisky stills are only in operation for one month every year and so their production is very small. Most of it's blended whisky, but when the single malts do come on the market the whisky is named ‘Akashi’ after its hometown. The first Akashi release was in 2007.
This bottling has been aged for 12 years in used Spanish Brandy casks, 1.5 years in sherry casks and half a year in French white wine casks. The Spanish brandy casks are over 20 years old, have never been reconditioned and are still used today to age various malts at the distillery.
Only 650 bottles produced, of which the Australian allocation is 60 bottles. Non chill filtered with no colouring added.
