A new single malt whiskey has appeared, out of “thin air,” from the Kamiki Drinks brand.
Oakpacker American Single Malt could very well be the world’s first air-harvested, water-fused whiskey. A statement from Kamiki Drinks described the pioneering process for making their new expression.
With Oakpacker, they use air-harvested water when cutting the proof of whiskey from cask to bottle strength. That technology enables the distiller to collect pure, clean water directly from the atmosphere, minimizing reliance on traditional water sources and conserving water resources.
So where did the name Oakpacker come from? Kamiki officials said that whiskey in general owes its unique flavors to squirrels, who help grow oak trees from acorns, thus providing wood for barrels. So, Oakpacker pays homage to the tree-dwelling creatures.
The distiller’s notes show that after aging, the single malt clocks in at 46% ABV. OakPacker features tasting notes of spice-roasted pecans, candied ginger, marzipan, carrot cake, allspice, baked fruit and Italian biscotti. The finish has hints of milk chocolate as well as toasted walnuts and fruit jam.
Oakpacker American Single Malt Whiskey is now available in the U.S., and will see a release in global markets later this year.
