[YouTube Video #11] Introduction of the latest whisky from the Akkeshi Distillery, its charm, and the secret of its delicious taste.

Akkeshi Distillery

The latest developments at the Akkeshi Distillery, basic information, how to drink and ask for a drink at the BAR, and the growing lineup of the Twenty-Four solar terms Series, where to start? The video introduces the beginning of the Akkeshi Distillery from the simple question, “Where should I start drinking?”


1. A starting point for beginners

The concept of this video is to introduce Japanese whisky to people who have been interested in “BAR” and “Japanese whisky” but have been reluctant to approach it.


We hope that it will be an opportunity to go to BAR and learn more about Japanese whisky, not only for connoisseurs who are familiar with Japanese whisky, but also for beginners who want to learn about whisky and Japanese whisky from scratch, and that it will be of interest to as many people as possible. We hope that this will be an opportunity for as many people as possible to become interested in Japanese whisky.

2. Introduction of the latest whisky from the Akkeshi Distillery, its charm, and the secret of its deliciousness

Here are the highlights of this 11th video.
“Akkeshi Distillery”, which started operation in 2016 in “Akkeshi-cho” in the east of Hokkaido, Japan, won the world’s highest award at the World Whisky Awards in just a few years, and has become a distillery that attracts attention around the world both in name and reality.
We will explain the basics of the distillery, its charm, the secret of its delicious taste, and expectations for the future with the best information we can find at the moment.

Currently, there are more than 70 whisky distilleries in Japan, and whisky production is underway every day.
