The Nikka Whisky Co. was founded by Masataka Taketsuru, who is widely acknowledged to be the father of Japanese whisky. In 1918 he travelled to Scotland, where he learnt the secrets of whisky making. In 1920 he returned to Japan and worked with a company to produce Japan’s first whisky. It soon became apparent that to produce whisky the way he felt it should be made, Masataka would have to become independent. In 1934 Masataka established Nikka Whisky and built its first distillery in Yoichi, Hokkaido, which he had always considered to be the ideal whisky-making site in Japan. Today Nikka has two large distilleries and several blending and bottling plants and is now part of the Asahi Group. Over the decades Nikka has become a fixture in Japan, known for its passion for quality and flavour. This Japanese Whisky is characterized by a deep and flavourful richness and excellent balance unique to whisky matured for 21 years. You're sure to enjoy the nose, which blends the richness of ripe fruit with the elegance of the aged cask, and the complex changes in character that appear as the finish approaches.more ↓ less ↑
