Nikka 由被喻為「日本威士忌之父」的竹鶴政孝於 1934 年創立（前身為 Dai Nippon Kaju），先後建立余市蒸餾所及宮城峽蒸餾所，兩所蒸餾所的不同作品均屢獲殊榮，標示年份的作品更可謂一瓶難求。
兩座 Coffey Still（連續式蒸餾器）均放置在宮城峽蒸餾所內。儘管 Coffey Malt 是由麥芽製成，基於法例規定，由連續式蒸餾器所生產的並不能稱之為「麥芽威士忌」，而罕見的蒸餾方式則使 Coffey Malt 擁有順滑、香甜及怡人的口感。
Nikka (formerly named as “Dai Nippon Kaju”) was established by Masataka Taketsuru in 1934. Yoichi Distillery and Miyagikyo Distillery were established later and they sticked to the traditional method which Mr. Taketsuru had learnt in Scotland. Many of their bottles captured different prizes and awards, and were stopped releasing due to shortage of old whisky.
Both Coffey Stills were transferred to Miyagikyo Distillery in 1999. Coffey Malt is made from 100% malted barley, however it cannot be categorized as “malt whisky” since it is not distilled in a pot still. This unique production method results in extraordinary flavors and texture.
