    DESCRIPTION

    The Taketsuru range is named after the founder of the Nikka Whisky Company, Masataka Taketsuru.


    The Taketsuru whiskies are a combination of single malt whiskies from Nikka's two distilleries, Yoichi and Miyagikyo. This is the non age statement bottling which comes predominantly from Miyagikyo distillery.

    KNOWLEDGE BAR

    Masataka Taketsuru left Japan in 1919 to study chemistry at Glasgow University before learning the art of whisky distillation by working at a number of Scottish distilleries and, in 1920, marrying a Scottish girl, Jessie "Rita" Cowan. Taketsuru chose Yoichi, on the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido, as the site for his first distillery because he believed that the geography, geology and climate of this part of Japan was most similar to Scotland.
