As one of the 7 distilleries owned by Eigashima Shuzo, White Oak is a boutique whisky distillery boutique whisky distillery, located in the oceanside city of Akashi. Founded in 1888, Eigashima’s origins are in the art of sake and shochu making. Today, its traditional pot stills are home to Akashi White Oak Whisky. Akashi whisky remains the only Japanese whisky in the world made by a Toji, a grand master in the art of sake-making.
The production of whisky at Eigashima is rare, hand crafted and small scale. By using techniques from sake-making the grand master crafts a unique and clean flavour profile. Production only takes place for three months of the year and much like their passion for sake, the focus remains on product quality for a premium whisky experience.
