Description/ Tasting NotesBlend of multiple types of malt and grain, Nikka from the Barrel, deliver full flavours and richness
Winery Info/ Brand
Of Nikka's two malt whisky distilleries, Yoichi produces rich, peaty and masculine malt. The whisky gets its distinct aroma and body from direct heating distillation, in which the pot stills are heated with finely powdered natural coal--the traditional method that is hardly ever used today, even in Scotland.
Region Info/ Origin
A popular tourist attraction, Yoichi is the town with a whiskey factory, wine town and sightseeing orchid town along with fresh seafood products. It is designated as a part of the Niseko-Shakotan-Otaru KAigan Quasi-National Park. With bountiful wine grape production, the area has seen the construction of multiple new wineries and is becoming famous both in Japan and worldwide as Hokkaido's premier wine valley.
