History

The story of Nikka is also the story of Japanese whiskey. Back in 1894, a boy named Masataka Taketsuru was born, a descendant of a historic family of sake producers, who since he was a boy had dreamed of producing a whiskey with the style and complexity of the great Scottish whiskies. In 1919, having finished his studies, he then went to Scotland to acquire the right know-how relating to distillation, aging and the other steps necessary to obtain quality whiskeys also in Japan. This experience will be fundamental for him not only for Taketsuru’s technical training, but because it will make him start dreaming of one day having his own distillery that produces the precious distillate in his homeland. After finishing his studies at the University of Glasgow, in 1934 Taketsuru’s project began to take shape: the Nippo Kaju company was opened and the still existing Yoichi distillery on the island of Hokkaido. In 1952 the name will be changed to Nikka Whisky, as we know it today; in 1962 a second distillery was established on the island of Honsu. Over the years Taketsuru’s distillery and courage have inspired many other professionals to create their Made in Japan distillates, and today Nikka is considered not only as one of the best distilleries in Japan, but in the world.

Production method

The production of grain whiskey is usually intended for the creation of blended whisky, as whiskeys obtained from malted barley are usually considered as the products capable of expressing the most intense, rich and precious sensations. In this label Nikka gives priority to the grain whiskey which is bottled in purity. It is mainly produced by the distillation of corn in the typical Coffey stills of the Nikka distillery.
