Today, Japanese whiskies are making a name for themselves and shaking up the old hierarchy of premium whiskies around the world.
Their reputation is constantly growing, as they are being discovered by more and more whisky lovers.
Since the year 2000, Nikka has played a major role in this development within Europe. More than just a whisky, Nikka is authentic in style, a true expression of Japanese culture, a mix of modernity and tradition, simplicity and sophistication.
A blend of Miyagikyo and Yoichi single malts with a unique grain whisky, Nikka From the Barrel embodies the expertise of the Nikka master blenders. Intense and generous, powerful yet controlled, this ambitious high strength blend is recognized for its originality.
It dares. It captures the senses. It imposes its own style.
