Nikka Whisky is a Japanese distillery located in Tokyo, founded by Masataka Taketsuru in 1934. It was originally Dai Nippon Kaju Co., Ltd., but the name was changed to Nikka in 1952. Taketsuru was involved in the first whisky distillery in Japan, Yamakazi, which he helped build in 1923. In 1963, the first Coffey Still was imported from Scotland and installed to produce grain whisky. He had the opportunity to learn how to distill whisky in Scotland, having attended the University of Glasgow and apprenticing at three Scotch distilleries, making him the first Japanese person to master the art of making whisky. The Nikka Coffey Grain Whisky is made in the Coffey Still, which was valued by Taketsuru for retaining the flavor of ingredients and creating a distinctive texture. It is made predominantly from corn and has a complex, sweet, mellow flavor with tons of texture and a long, lingering finish.
