Japanese Whisky



There are many people who aren't aware that Japan produce their own Whiskies, but we are sure that will change.

Despite not being around longer than a century and having few distilleries compared to other native whiskies, Japan has worked hard to develop its own unique style based on traditional scotch models.

Japanese whisky is growing in stature and starting to make a name for itself in the Western world winning several awards along the way. Japanese whiskies lie between between Lowland and Speyside in style and produce both blended and single malt whiskies.

Things are easy when you're big in Japan..
