If you are an expert on Japanese whisky or Japanese television, you may have heard of the NHK morning show, Massan. Massan is a dramatization of the life of the founder of Nikka, Masataka Taketsuru and his wife Rita Taketsuru.
This particular final release set was to honour their story. The Taketsuru bottle is for Masataka, while the apple wine bottle is for Rita. So if you are a fan of the show, or you’re interested in the history of Japanese whisky, then this is for you!
