AKASHI YUZU JAPANESE WHISKY HIGHBALL
The first ready-to-drink Japanese highball from Eigashima Shuzo’s Akashi Whisky. The distillery’s Akashi Whisky is made by its family’s ninth generation of operators who employ centuries old traditions and techniques. Their blended malt and grain whisky is amplified by fresh yuzu (Japanese citrus) in a citrus-forward take on the classic highball. Canned at 7% ABV, this crushable highball is packed full of flavor and is built for sessionability.

Eigashima Shizo is one of Japan's oldest family-run distilleries with 100 years of whisky-making experience.

Now Eigashima is lovingly known as "Japan's Micro Distillery" having just recently hired their 7th full-time employee.
Eigashima has been making sake and shochu with Japanese traditional craftmaship since 1888, and as the first distillery to obtain a license to make whisky in Japan in 1919, is a true pioneer in its field. Know for its clear air and water, the city of Akashi is located in close proximity to Kobe and is the only distillery in Japan situated closely to the sea.
