Proof66 Notes

Akashi White Oak blended whisky is a formula made especially for the international (read: European and American) markets. The spirit used to contain a blend of molasses-based spirit (rum) that would disqualify it as whisky in the western markets. Those hitting the shelf are a blend of single-malt and grain whisky. It carries no age statement and is bottled at a relatively light 80 proof, suggesting an easy-drinking and approachable spirit.

The Akashi Sake Brewery and Eigashima Distillery claims a history stretching back to the Tokugawa Shogunate trading in soy sauce and rice. It was officially incorporated in 1918 but reaching back to 1888. It's modern facilities were constructed in 1984 and today is located in the city of Kobe Today they claim to use only yamada-nishiki rice grown locally for their spirits.
