Der allererste Blended Whisky der Brennerei auf der Insel Hokkaido, Akkeshi Blended Whisky Usui, ist eine Mischung aus Single Malts, die in Akkeshi destilliert wurden und mindestens drei Jahre lang gereift sind, und einer Ergänzung von importierten neuen Spirituosen, die aber in Japan gereift sind, mit importierten Grain Whiskys.

Dieser Blend ist der zweite in der "24 Solar term series", die vom alten asiatischen Kalender inspiriert ist, in dem ein Jahr in 24 Sonnenjahre unterteilt ist. Sein harmonisches und torfiges Profil offenbart ein reichhaltiges und fruchtiges Bouquet mit Noten von Zitrusfrüchten, Rosinen, aber auch Kakao und cremigem Kraut. Am Gaumen erinnert er an einen Curaçao, wobei sich die Zitrusaromen mit Noten von gelben Zitronen, Limetten und saftigen Orangen intensivieren. Im Abgang vermischt sich die Süße der Milchschokolade mit der Schärfe von weißem Pfeffer.

  • 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.
