The 24 Japanese Sekki are days that divide the solar year into 24 equal micro seasons. Daikan, roughly translated as “the peak of winter,” begins around January 20th, and is considered Japan’s coldest season. The label design, inspired by the heavy fog of Akkeshi Bay, conveys this brooding chill, but worry not—the rich grain whisky and peated mizunara cask influence make for a sturdy dram to fortify oneself through the coldest days of winter.
