Today, Japanese whiskies are making a name for themselves and are shaking up the old hierarchy of premium whiskies aroung the world. Their reputation is constantly growing, as they are being discovered by more and more whisky lovers. Since the year 2000, Nikka Whisky has played a mjor role in this development within Europe.

More than just a whisky, Nikka is authentic in style, a true expression of Japanese culture - a mix of modernity and tradition, simpicity and sophistication.

Nikka was started in 1934 by Masataka Taketsuru, the father of Japanese whisky. He started by building the Yoichi distillery on the isalnd of Hokkaido. The location is special with its proximity to the sea, the climate and the water which flows through a bog to reach the distillery. The result is a fine, weighty, powerful malt with martime notes. Yoichi was the first non Scotish Malt to  win the World's Best Single Malt in 2001. It did it again in 2008.

In 1969, Taketsuru open his second distillery near the city of Sendai, in the foothils of the Japanese Alps. The region is famous for its ari purity and the high rate of hygromenty, ideal for ageing in oak barrels. Miyagiyo distillery has a column still importer from Scotland as well as four pot stills. The Malt is known for its femine elegance and delicateness.

2015 was one of the most successful years for Nikka Whisky. Apart from receiving gold medals for  7 of its whiskies it also received The Distiller of the Year Award from the International Spirits Challenge.
