Akkeshi 'Ritto' season 'Winter Begins' Single Malt Japanese Whisky (700 ml)

Located in Japan’s northern most island of Hokkaido and further east than any other distillery in the country, production at Akkeshi Distillery started in 2016. The town of Akkeshi has a cool, moist climate with frequent rolling sea fog that blankets the town coming off the marshes of the Bekan-Beushi wetlands. Fog and marshes like these are indispensable to the production of whisky with similar characteristics to Islay malts. Operating in this bountiful natural environment, Akkeshi Distillery will be a sustainable enterprise in harmony with nature. The goal of Akkeshi Distillery is to blend traditional Scottish methods with the unique flavors of Akkeshi, Japan.

The 5th release in Akkeshi's "24 Sekki" Series. This is the season when the first snow makes their presence felt in the northern prefectures. As the colors of winter deepen, so do the sweet flavors of Akkeshi malt whisky in casks, gradually becoming more full and bold.
