Tokinoka, which means "scent of time" in Japanese, is a blend of single malts and grain whiskies matured in sherry, Bourbon and Shochu casks.

Its delicate and balanced profile, and its beautiful aromatic range make Tokinoka an ideal whisky to be initiated to Japanese whiskies. Bottled in a pretty little 50 cl bottle with the typical shape of White Oak whiskies, this Japanese blended has everything to seduce from the opening with a greedy nose between cereals and honey. When tasted, its light style expresses vanilla and malty aromas that continue in the mouth with elegance and refinement.

The White Oak distillery, located in the city of Akashi (Hyogo prefecture), was the first to obtain a distillation license for whisky in 1919. Built in 1888 for the production of sake and shochu, single malt production really started when the site was modernized in 1984. The Eigashima Shuzo Company, which owns the distillery, has been producing the single malt called Akashi since 2007.

A blend of grain whiskey and single malt, this blended whiskey is the expression of Japanese taste and know-how: precision and balance of aromas, delicate texture. Its light style, both vanilla and fruity and with gourmet cereal notes is in keeping with the ever-growing Japanese style.

Volume: 50cl
Alcohol : 40%

Japan-Best is first and foremost a story about Japanese craftsmen with the influence of contemporary design. We are inspired by the timeless beauty of traditional Japanese craftsmanship, and their ability to adapt to our modern lifestyle. The more brands we meet, the more passionate we become about the stories behind each product; the skills of the craftsmen, or the long tradition of an object left unchanged for generations yet somehow remaining contemporary.

Japan-Best is a collection of Japanese brands, which we have selected for the originality of their design, the quality of their production, the fact that their production is “Made in Japan”, and the long history that they maintain, quite often for several generations.

Our selection of Japanese food is also based on craftsmanship in agriculture. We choose brands based on how they are made and we love brands that continue to use traditional natural techniques to grow food and prepare it. Good packaging and design is always and added joy to find!
