The Nikka Distillery


Since its founding in 1934 by Suntory's first master distiller, Masataka Taketsuru, Nikka Whiskey Distilling Company has become the second largest whiskey producer in Japan, offering a wide range of single malts from its two distilleries and a range of acclaimed blendeds worldwide.


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 whiskey. 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 in 1918 Scotch whiskey caught his attention. Thus Masataka undertook a voyage of discovery to Scotland, becoming the first Japanese to study whiskey. During his stay he studied organic chemistry at the University of Glasgow and acquired perspective and the importance of artisanal work working as an apprentice in different distilleries.


In 1923 he returned to Japan with vast knowledge of the world of whiskey and a Scottish woman. That same year, the first whiskey distillery in Japan, Suntory, was inaugurated as master distiller and co-founder. Soon after, Masataka becomes independent and creates his own distillery in 1934, Nikka.
