White Oak Distillery (Eigashima) Uozumi Single Malt Japanese Whisky (500ml)

Akashi, JAPAN
$299.00 Bottle
  • ABV 46%

The White Oak distillery (Eigashima) 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. We have obtained a bottle of what would locally be known as 'Ji Whisky' - whisky produced by small local breweries and distilleries that are not nationally distributed. There is very little information available about this partucular 'Uozomi' release, however basic research indicates this to be from 2015 and matured in a mixture Sherry and Bourbon cask types.

*Only 1 bottle available.
