Founded by Masataka Taketsuru in 1934, Nikka is the second largest distiller in Japan. Starting with the Yoichi distillery and then adding Miyagikyo in 1969, Nikka also own Ben Nevis distillery in Scotland. Owned by Asahi Breweries since 2001, the name Nikka is a contraction of Nippon Kaju which was adopted in 1952.

When most of us hear the words "Coffey still", we immediately think of grain spirits. but this whisky from Nikka is made using only malted barley, and is then distilled in a continuous Coffey still, rather than the traditional pot still. A great example that non pot still distilled whisky can also be pretty delicious.

45% ABV / 70cl
