Our whiskies hail from highly respected distilleries in Scotland, Japan, France and the United States. Produced in the classic tradition, they appeal to adventurous whisky enthusiasts who have a genuine appreciation for quality.
Tokinoka is produced by the White Oak Distillery in Japan. The history of the company can be traced back to 1679 when the Eigashima Company started producing Saké. In 1888, they started a brewery and then obtained a distilling license in 1919 under the name White Oak, the first ever whisky distilling license in Japan.
After the Second World War, demand for whisky increased in Japan and as a result, Eigashima started distilling malt whisky in small pot stills made in Japan. Besides its saké, it was already producing grain whisky known as shochu. In 1984, a new building was dedicated to whisky production but due to the economic crisis that followed, production, and therefore stocks, was reduced. The annual production is currently limited to 30,000 liters per annum.
Master Blender, Akito Ueda, has crafted a new version of Tokinoka made from 50% Malt whisky and 50% grain whisky matured in 3 different types of wood: bourbon, sherry and virgin American oak. This new expression contains a higher percentage of malt that brings a smooth palate and full body, spicy and creamy notes and a round sweet finish with hints of vanilla: a trade mark of Tokinoka.
