The Akkeshi distillery is located on the island of Hokkaido. It started operations in 2016 and was founded by Keiichi Toita, who carefully chose the location, in northern Japan, for its climatic conditions very similar to those in Scotland: salt spray from the sea, pure air, rich peat deposits.

The stated intention is to use traditional Scottish distilling methods, to create a whisky similar to those of Islay; in fact, it is no coincidence that the two pot stills and the mash tun come from Forsyths, and it was some workers from the Scottish distillery who installed them, in 2013. As at Islay, moreover, the whiskey is made using water filtered through a layer of peat. Former bourbon and sherry casks are used for maturation, as well as rare Japanese oak casks; experiments are also being conducted on casks that have contained wine and rum.

Akkeshi Single Malt Peated Ritto, this Single Malt is the fifth in the 'Of the 24 Solar Terms' series, inspired by the ancient Asian calendar that divides the year into 24 solar seasons.

Ritto is the time when winter begins, amid autumn breezes, falling leaves and the first snow in the north. Aged in Mizunara ex-Sherry and ex-Pinot noir oak barrels, it is rich in fruity notes, citrus, white pepper and smoky hints.
