Created in 2007 by Mikio Hiraishi, the Akashi brand is declined in numerous bottlings such as single casks, single malts or blends whose quality is now widely recognized and appreciated throughout the world.
Mikio Hiraishi's creativity can be seen in each Akashi whisky with the use of a wide variety of casks for aging, from traditional bourbon and sherry casks to red and white wine casks from Yamanashi, or even sake casks used for the maturation of the Akashi Saké Cask single malt.
Located near the Seto Inland Sea, in Hyogo Prefecture where the climate has great temperature differences between summer and winter, the Eigashima distillery formerly named White Oak, was built in 1984 by Mikio Hiraishi.
Akashi whiskies have kept their authenticity and reflect perfectly the artisanal and pioneer spirit of the Eigashima distillery by proposing a wide range of whiskies of which the single malts are the flagship.
