Nikka Yoichi Single Malt Whisky

Nikka Yoichi Single Malt Whisky

70cl | 45% ABV | Japan

Relaunched in 2016, Yoichi Single Malt has no age statement due to being a blend of whiskies from different years. Bold with hints of brine, alongside peaty notes and smokiness originating from the traditional direct coal-fired distillation.

Made at the Yoichi distillery, this is the finest example of terroir. Yoichi is surrounded by the Sea of Japan (to the north) and mountains (to the east, south and west), this creates an impactful and unique environment for whisky-production.

About this product

Nikka Yoichi Single Malt is peated yet fruity - a strange but delightful mix! Add a splash of water to open it up.

Masataka Taketsuru is the founder of Nikka Whisky. He enrolled at the University of Glasgow, Scotland, becoming the first Japanese ever to study the art of whisky-making. Later he returned to Japan and produced the country's first single malt whisky.

In 1934 Masataka opened the Nikka Whisky Co distillery in the town of Yoichi. Later, his second distillery was located in foggy glen surrounded by mountains and at a junction of two clean rivers, by coincidence the name of the river was Nikkawa.
