The Story of The Nikka Whisky Company
The Nikka Whisky Co. was founded by Masataka Taketsuru, who is widely acknowledged as the father of Japanese whisky. The company has two large distilleries and several blending and bottling plants and is now part of the Asahi Group.
Masataka Taketsuru’s family owned a sake brewery that dated back to 1733. Taught early that sake-making is a painstakingly fine art, Masataka studied diligently and trained as a chemist, preparing to carry on the family trade. However, Scotch whisky captured the young man’s imagination and he decided to dedicate his life to it. In 1918, Masataka Taketsuru travelled to Scotland, where he learnt the secrets of whisky-making and met the woman who would become his bride, Jessie Roberta Cowan.
In 1920, Masataka returned to Japan with his new bride and worked with a company to produce Japan’s first whisky. It soon became apparent that to produce whisky the way he felt it should be made, Masataka would have to become independent. In 1934, he established Nikka Whisky and built its first distillery in Yoichi, Hokkaido, which he had always considered to be the ideal whiskymaking site in Japan. He subsequently built a second distillery in the foothills of Miyagi to produce rich, fruity and elegant whiskies. In the decades since Nikka has become a fixture in Japan, known for its passion for quality and flavour.

It was recommended to me as a gateway to Japan by a true connoisseur, dangerous advice, I'm now buying more. The massive boom in Japanese whiskeys that is gathering pace is pushing the price up, so strike while the iron is hot, if you can splash out a bit I'd also advise buying some of the Nikka aged bottles, they're vanishing fast and the prices is shooting up, once you've tried this you'll want more, best to buy before they become unaffordable.
Definitely a drink to be savoured, enjoyed and definitely not rushed

Yum yum yum. Just delicious. Amazing that it's Japanese. If you like a smooth, non-peaty whiskey this is for you. I could drink it all night long.Published 1 month ago by SensibleSteve
One of my favourites. Completely hides its strength in an envelope of sweetness, fruit, and spice. I find new flavours almost every time I try a new glass. Read morePublished 2 months ago by EGiddens
