Nikka Coffey Malt
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.
