The Akuto family traditions are honoured in this expression, reflecting a family history with sake production dating back twenty-one generations to the 17th century. The Double Distilleries Pure Malt Whisky features a sweet nose with spiced palate and well-rounded oak. Bottled at 46% with no added colouring and no chill-filtration, this whisky features a smooth bitter-sweet medium finish.
