The distillery White Oak is perhaps the least known of the Japanese whiskey manufacturer, but it has a legitimate claim to being the oldest Japanese distillery, with a license to make the whiskey granted in 1919, four years before it was built the distillery Yamazaki .
The distillery White Oak is located in the city of Akashi in Hyogo Prefecture, west of Kobe, facing the Seto Inland Sea. The distillery was founded by Eigashima Shuzo in 1888 for the production of sake.
