The Eigashima distillery was founded by Eigashima Shuzo in 1888 to produce sake. By 1919, they obtained a license to produce whisky, and soon after, started whisky production. It survived the whisky boom of the 70s and 80s unscratched – a clear testimony to the quality of its whisky. This particular Akashi whisky is an Aka-head 4 year old red wine cask finish released from the distillery, and is perfect for those who’d like to try out Japanese Ji-whisky. It is presented with a box.
