About the distillery
The Nikka Whisky Distilling Co. Ltd. is a producer of Japanese whisky and other beverages headquartered in Tokyo.
The company operates a number of distilleries and other facilities in Japan, including two Japanese whisky distilleries, the Yoichi distillery in Yoichi, Hokkaido (established in 1934), and the Miyagikyo distillery in Aoba-ku, Sendai, Miyagi Prefecture, Northern HonshÅ«(established in 1969). It also owns the Ben Nevis Distillery (acquired in 1989) in Scotland.
Named after the 'father of Japanese whisky', Masataki Taketsuru, this 21 year old Pure Malt was awarded "World's Best Blended Malt Whisky" at the 2010 World Whiskies Awards.
Masataki Taketsuru's passion took him to Scotland to learn the art of distilling. Returning to Japan, the father of Japanese whisky founded Japan's first malt distillery and carefully created a whisky with the very finest fragrance, body and taste. Aged 21 years old, this Pure Malt remains faithful to Takesuru's patient dedication to blending and passion for quality.
