We released our first product in 2018.
New Born was conceived to communicate our progress to whisky enthusiasts everywhere.
The first instalment of a four-part limited edition single malt spirit release.
"Foundations" represents the Dream, Beginning, Establishment and Birth of new era in Japanese whisky.
A vatted blend of non-peated malts matured between 5-14 months in quality first-fill bourbon casks.
Bottled at 60% alcohol by volume to produce a flavour resembling a cask strength whisky.
Perfect neat, with a few drops of water, twice up, or on the rocks according to taste. Savour slowly to fully appreciate the subtle blossoming of flavour.
In Scotland, "whisky" designates a beverage matured in casks for at least three years.
Following this precedent, we named this product "New Born", not "whisky".
Akkeshi New Born "Foundations" will be released in a four-part series in February 2018, August 2018, February 2019, and August 2019
- a collection well worth waiting for.
Adding whisky to raw oysters is a custom on the island of Islay, and Akkeshi is equally famed for its oysters.
Pour a few drops of New Born onto a raw oyster encased in the shell.
The flavours will blend together in your mouth, instantly transporting you to the briny seashore. We invite you to sample this exquisite oyster pairing.
