Presented in an asymmetrical decanter bottle inspired by the cut of the neck of a Kimono, The Nikka 12 Years 70cl 43%vol. is a Japanese blended resulting from the mixture of whiskies from the distilleries Yoichi and Migagikyo, a full-bodied whisky, with pleasant notes of oak, fruit, which highlights the apple, cream, vanilla and a touch of peat, a blended complex and intense that has nothing to do with the most widespread blended.
Since its foundation in 1934 by Suntory's first master distiller, Masataka Taketsuru, Nikka Whisky Distilling Company has become the second largest whisky producer in Japan, offering a wide range of single malts from its two distilleries and a range of world-renowned blendeds.
The company owns two distilleries; the first, founded in 1934 in Yoichi, Yoichi Distillery and the second Miyagikyo Distillery in Miyagiken.
Matasaka Taketsuru is known as the father of Japanese whisky. Masataka was born into a family dedicated to the production of Sake, and determined to continue and take over the family business, he studied chemistry in Japan until 1918 when Scotch whisky attracted his attention. So Masataka embarked on a voyage of discovery to Scotland, becoming the first Japanese to study whisky. During his stay he studied organic chemistry at the University of Glasgow and gained perspective and the importance of artisan making by working as an apprentice in different distilleries.
In 1923 he returns to Japan with vast knowledge of the world of whisky and with a Scottish woman. That same year, as master distiller and co-founder, the first whisky distillery in Japan, Suntory, was inaugurated. Shortly afterwards, Masataka became independent and created his own distillery in 1934, Nikka.
