The Nikka Whisky Co. was founded by Masataka Taketsuru, who is widely acknowledged as the father of Japanese whisky. Established in 1934 the company has two large distilleries and several blending and bottling plants and is now part of the Asahi Group. Nikka operates two Coffey stills (named after its inventor Aeneas Coffey) within the Miyagikyo distillery for the elaboration of its grain whiskies. Imported from Scotland in 1963, these old stills yield a distillate with more flavour and depth than modern column stills, imparting a distinct character that defines the house blends. Representing an essential component of the house blends of Nikka, this unique release is an original single grain whisky, distilled mainly from corn in a Coffey still. Exotic, fruity and alluring, with an immense amount of character, Nikka Coffey Grain is a perfect choice for spirits connoisseurs in search of an unconventional whisky.
