Founded by Masataka Taketsuru, the father of Japanese whisky, Nikka Whisky Distilling Co. is a world- renowned spirits brand created in Japan with more than 80 years of mastery in blending behind it. First produced in 1940, Nikka Whisky continues its steadfast legacy of marrying tradition and innovation, as set forth by Taketsuru. Guided by his philosophies, the variations of malt whiskies distilled at Nikka’s two distinct distilleries – Yoichi and Miyagikyo – and grain whiskies distilled in Coffey Stills remain the core pillars of Nikka’s complexity and creativity.
More recently launched, Nikka Days ($49.99 SRP), was first introduced to the United States in July 2020 and created to elevate everyday drinking occasions. The unique blend’s key components include mellow and smooth Coffey grain and aromatic Miyagikyo non-peated malts, along with a small amount of Coffey malt whisky and Yoichi malts, blended to enhance the bright sweetness and right body. The result is a complex and delicate whisky with an extremely silky mouthfeel, with fruity and floral flavors that rise and expand, leaving behind a delightful aftertaste enjoyed neat, on the rocks, and in your favorite cocktail.
