The Grain

A step back in time to traditional whiskey making methods

A true personal highlight for me and a trip I always love to show guests in the Nikka Whiskey distillary in Yochi.

This is where the world famous Yochi single malt Nikka Whiskey is made that one the worlds best whiskey on more than one occassions.

Legend has it that Masataka Taketsuru traveled all the way back to Scotland in the 1940’s to learn about whiskey making from the masters. He used only traditional methods and the large copper pot stills are that Masataka used are still working to this day.

An amazing place to walk around, an amazing love story that brought cultures together long before this was a normal thing and mos importantly a great place to try and purchase some of the worlds best whiskey.

 

Masataka Taketsuru, the first Japanese who mastered whisky making in Scotland, valued the climate and natural features of the north. Yoichi, the place chosen by Masataka was close to the sea, surrounded by mountains on three sides and in many ways similar to Highland in Scotland.

A cold climate with an appropriate humidity, crisp clean air and fresh water – everything necessary for his ideal whisky was available. The proximity to the sea is one of the distinctive features of Yoichi. The sea breeze gives a briny hint to the whisky during the maturation.

Summary

A trip to the Nikka distillery in Yochi is always a person favorite of mine. It's a really nice drive out and the distillery itself is so photogenic and feels like you are walking around an 19th century Scottish distillery. There is a great tasting bar for the good stuff and you can also try their best sellers for free. An in house shop is a great place to stock up on gifts and souvenirs as well as boost your own private supply.
