The White Oak distillery in the town of Akashi is supposedly the oldest distillery in Japanese (four years older than Yamazaki, they say). The Eigashima Company (current owner of the distillery) didn’t release their first single malt until 2007. The malt comes from Scotland, and this distillery only operates for two months out of every year.
