About Nikka Whisky


In 1918, Masataka Taketsuru, a young Japanese man with an ambition to make genuine whisky went alone to Scotland to unveil the secret of whisky-making. He went on to become the first Japanese ever to master how to make whisky.  The two notebooks he returned to Japan with, overflowing with notes and details, later became Japan’s very first guide in whisky production. Masataka later founded Nikka Whisky. 

Nikka Whisky produces a wide range of whiskies and has since expanded to own a number of distilleries, including Ben Nevis Distillery in Scotland.
