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.
