Put simply - great whisky, great presentationNikka from the barrel is a blend of multiple types of malt and grain whisky. It was created to deliver full flavours and richness of whisky "from barrels". As the whisky contains so many characteristic components at a higher alcohol of 51.4%, it is essential to let the liquid "marry" in used casks for 3-6 months for it to stabilise and harmonise.

    Nikka is the brainchild of Masataka Taketsuru who travelled from Japan to Scotland in 1918 to join the ranks at Glasgow University to study whisky making. His love affair with both the country and whisky itself was quick to evolve with such an effect that he also went on to marry a Scot, Jessie Roberta. Returning back to Japan in 1920 with his new wife, Masataka started making whisky for a Japanese distillery to some success for the next decade. But over time he felt that to make the whisky he realy wanted to produce he had to strike out on his own and so in 1934 the beginnings of Nikka were launched.
