NIKKA



The story of Nikka Whisky is the greatest love story ever told (don’t even think about bringing up Ross and Rachel; Ross is terrible). Japanese distiller Masataka Taketsuru and Glasgow local Jessie Roberta (Rita), fell in love while Masataka was studying the art of whisky-making in Scotland. In 1920 the pair, now married, returned to Japan, where Masataka was the only citizen to have mastered the art of whisky making. He was quickly employed as the head distiller of Suntory, where the first genuine whisky was made in Japan.

10 years later, with significant emotional and financial backing from Rita, Masataka decided to become independent and make his own premium whisky. In 1934 he built his first distillery in Yoichi, Hokkaido, a place - though inconveniently located - he had always considered to be the ideal site for whisky making. The environmental conditions of Yoichi were in many ways similar to those of Scotland with a cool climate, crisp air and appropriate humidity. In 1940, the first Nikka whisky was released. Since then, Nikka have produced single malts of numerous styles as well as an impressive range of blended whiskies that are regularly recognised at international whisky awards. See, we told you it was the greatest love story ever!
