Situated on the Northern island of Hokkaido, the Yoichi distillery was bulit by Masataka Takersuru in what he thought was the ideal site for a whisky distillery. The stills are direct fired, something that has been abandoned by all but a handful of Scottish distilleries, and they describe their whisky as a, "rich, peaty and masculine malt."

The Yoichi distillery was founded by the Nikka group in October 1934. The construction project was carefully supervised by Japanese whisky legend Masataka Taketsuru so as to ensure it met his super high standards.
