Akkeshi “Sarorunkamuy – The First” Single Malt Japanese Whisky
Translating to “white crane” in Ainu, Sarorun Kamuy is the first official single malt from Japan’s buzzing Akkeshi Distillery, located in a National Park on the northern Hokkaido island. This whisky is aged in Mizunara, bourbon, sherry and red wine casks and recently took home a Double Gold from SFWSC 2020 in the “Other Single Malt” category. Total of 3,000 bottles released to the US.
The Akkeshi Distillery aims to combine traditional Scottish methods with the specific elements of the local environment to craft whisky with unique aromas and flavors. From the importer: “With production that started in 2016, Akkeshi Distillery is located on Japan’s northernmost island, Hokkaido, and is further east than any other distillery in the country. The town of Akkeshi has a cool, moist climate with frequent rolling sea fog coming off the marshes of the Bekan-Beushi wetlands, blanketing the town. Fog and marshes like these are indispensable to the production of whisky with similar characteristics to Islay malts.”
