The Nikka whisky company was founded in 1934 by Masataka Taketsuru, with the creation of his Yoichi distillery on the island of Hokkaido. Arguably the “grandfather” of Japanese whisky, Taketsuru learned his trade studying Organic Chemistry at The University of Glasgow in 1918, before apprenticing at Longmorn, and laterally Hazelburn distilleries. With humble beginnings, producing apple juice and cider to keep the cash flowing whilst the whisky came of age, Nikka has grown to become one of the best known names in Japanese whisky.
In addition to their Japanese operations, Nikka also owns Ben Nevis distillery, and ships malt whisky from the distillery back to Japan for use in it's Nikka Black expression.
Contains whisky from Yoichi and Miayagikyo distilleries this was originally only for the Japanese market. This whisky comes from some of the oldest stocks available at both distilleries and it regularly receives the kind of reviews mere mortal drams can only dream of.
