Akashi Ume whisky is carefully crafted from 30% malted barley, a proportion that adds a distinctive richness to its character. It then undergoes double pot still distillation, a traditional method that enhances its depth and complexity. After this first stage, it is aged in bourbon casks, where it acquires a subtle woody harmony. But what makes Akashi Ume truly unique is its subsequent 3-month maturation in Umeshu Shiratama casks.

This step brings a special touch to this whisky, adding delicate fruity notes and incomparable elegance. On the nose, you'll discover deliciously fruity aromas of vanilla and plum. On the palate, Akashi Ume whisky reveals a seductive roundness and rich texture, with woody, spicy flavors that blend harmoniously with the sweetness of plum. The finish is all elegance, leaving a subtle woody imprint.

A true ode to Japanese craftsmanship and the art of distillation, Akashi Ume will introduce you to the refinement of the Akashi distillery.
