Yoichi Distillery was the first distillery of Nikka.
Masataka Taketsuru, the "Father of Japanese Whisky," and a sake brewer’s son, never truly left his roots. He always tried to keep in mind the impact of the environment, and his father's thoughts on what makes the best spirit.


Member's favorites from Yoichi
The Yoichi Distillery is located west of Sapporo, surrounded by mountains on three sides, and the coast on one side.

It lies on the same latitude as New York and Toronto. Yoichi was founded by the legendary Taketsuru in 1934.

They continued to grow at a steady pace to become one of the Japan's leading distilleries. There are 6 pot stills and 10 washbacks in Yoichi. The malt used in the distillery is rather peated.
