TAKETSURU

The Miyagikyo (pron. mee-yag-ee-kyo) distillery is the second and larger distillery of the Nikka Whisky Company. It was established in 1969 by the genuine hero of Japanese Whisky Masataka Taketsuru. After a 3-year search Masataka settled in Sendai, in the Miyagi prefecture. He immediately recognised the area as ideal for Whisky production, with its fresh water and suitable humidity. Most of the Whisky Miyagakyo produces goes into Nikka’s popular range of blended Whiskies and only a small percentage is released as single malts, which is a shame.
