Erst vor sieben Jahren nahm die Akkeshi Brennerei ihren Betrieb auf und schreibt schon jetzt Erfolgsgeschichte. Wie ihre Vorbilder auf der Whiskyinsel Islay liegt die erste Brennerei der gleichnamigen Stadt in der Region Hokkaido direkt am Meer – nur wenige Meter vom Pazifischen Ozean entfernt. Umgeben von Sümpfen hat sie außerdem direkten Zugang zum örtlichen Torf. Der geliebte Rohstoff kam auch für die neuesten Abfüllungen der „24 Solar Term Series“ zum Einsatz.

Ritto 2021 ist das fünfte Release der Reihe, die vom alten asiatischen Kalender inspiriert ist, in dem ein Jahr in 24 Sonnenjahre unterteilt ist. Ritto steht dabei für die Saison des Übergangs zum Winter und der Chitose-Zuckerstangen, deren Verpackung das Design des Whiskys inspirieren. Sein leicht rauchiges Profil mit schokoladigen Noten, Zitrusfrüchten und weißem Pfeffer entwickelt der Single Malt in Mizunara-, Sherry- und Pinot-Noir-Fässern.

  • Akkeshi - Japanese Whisky

    Akkeshi Distillery, established in 2016, is a beacon of innovation in the world of Japanese whisky. Owned by the Tokyo-based trading company Kenten Jitsugyo, Akkeshi is situated in Hokkaido, an area bearing striking similarities to Scotland's Islay, which serves as the inspiration for Akkeshi's spirits. This unique location, coupled with the distillery's dedication to traditional methods, positions Akkeshi as a rising star in the whisky world.

    The maritime climate of Akkeshi, with its proximity to the sea, imparts a distinctively maritime flavor profile to its whiskies. The strong, smoky notes on the palate are enhanced by the mist and sea spray, creating a sensory experience reminiscent of Islay's famed whiskies. However, Akkeshi stands apart with its dramatic climate variations, unlike Islay's more stable temperatures, contributing to the uniqueness of its whisky flavors.

    Akkeshi's maturation process utilizes primarily Sherry Butt and ex-Bourbon barrels, while also experimenting with other cask types like Japanese Mizunara oak, ex-wine, and ex-rum barrels. This diverse cask usage adds layers of complexity and depth to their whiskies. Currently using barley sourced from Scotland, Akkeshi is poised to transition to local resources for future bottlings, further cementing its commitment to capturing the essence of its environment.

    Experience the bold and innovative spirit of Akkeshi, where each bottle is a harmonious blend of Japanese craftsmanship and the rugged charm of Hokkaido. Akkeshi Distillery is not just producing whisky; it's crafting a unique narrative in the world of Japanese whisky, one exceptional bottle at a time.
