We've come to love Nikka Whisky for its prestigious peatiness that comes from Hokkaido's particular climate, where the Yoichi Distillery is situated. Masataka Taketsuru, the founder of Nikka, Father of Japanese Whisky (not sure if also First of his name), studied Scotch-crafting in Scotland on a kind of scholarship. Upon returning, he started the "Great Japanese Juice Company" while setting up his Whisky operation. The rest is pretty much history.

The "Discovery Series" honors Nikka's specific distillation process and its crucial components. The first to-be-annual expression 2021 is a complete 180° from the brand's usual famous smokiness. Only non-peated malts mingle in the exquisite 20,000 bottles released. Take a walk on the breezier side of Whisky, stop and smell the fruity aroma with hints of honey, savor the sweetness announced by the citrus. The trip has a long, rich finish. All we are saying is give silky Nikka a chance. Tanoshinde!

Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Japanese Whisky is connected both to Scotch and Bourbon. It’s a Scotch-style Spirit that’s matured in climates similar to Kentucky’s.
The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan and major rivals are Nikka and Suntory.
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.
It's not uncommon for Japanese Whisky to be aged in mizunara (Japanese oak) casks. Suntory conducted a research on how mizunara oak influences Whisky flavor and found out it adds coconut notes to it.
Yoichi Distillery was the first distillery of Nikka.
