Yoichi Distillery Single Malt Japanese Whisky

Nikka Whisky proudly houses two distinctive distilleries: Yoichi and Miyagikyo. Established in 1934 by Masataka Taketsuru, Yoichi Distillery stands as a testament to his pioneering spirit. As the first Japanese to master whisky making in Scotland, Masataka chose Yoichi due to its proximity to the sea, surrounded by mountains on three sides—a locale reminiscent of the Scottish Highlands. Masataka introduced a pot still using direct coal-fire, a traditional method seldom employed today due to its challenging temperature control and the need for highly skilled craftsmen. The unique characteristics of Yoichi Single Malt, marked by boldness and toasty burnt flavors, are a direct result of this traditional coal-fired distillation.
