Details

The White Oak whisky distillery is located in the city of Akashi in Hyōgo Prefecture, west of Kōbe, facing the Seto Inland Sea.  The distillery was founded by Eigashima Shuzō which has produced sake and shochu since 1888.  Eigashima Shuzō 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 quantity each year is minuscule.  Due to this, most of White Oak’s production are blended whiskies due to the limited amounts available to be aged for long enough for single malt bottling, but when these single malts do come on the market the whisky is named ‘Akashi’ after its hometown.  The first Akashi release was in 2007.
