Celebrating Miyagikyo’s 50th Anniversary
This year marks an important milestone in the history of Nikka as the company celebrates the 50th anniversary of the world renowned Miyagikyo Distillery. Founded in 1969 by Masataka Taketsuru, the Father Of Japanese Whisky, the distillery has played a pivotal role in developing the signature blends that have allowed Nikka to rise to prominence. The whisky offers a variety of soft, fruity and floral flavors in complete contrast to Nikka’s Yoichi Distillery. These distinct characteristics have created a synergy unlike any other in Japanese Whisky and as such, Nikka has released a limited edition commemorative bottle from each distillery.

World Class Japanese Single Malts
Nikka has revealed that both of these releases contain whisky distilled in each decade starting from the 1960s until present, carefully married to produce an extraordinary single malt that epitomizes the legacy of Masataka Taketsuru. The release offers the rare opportunity to experience the combination of some of the best whisky Nikka has ever produced, including some spirit aged for more than 50 years. If you’re looking to taste the upper echelon of Nikka single malts, this release is second to none.
Immaculate Design & Stunning Presentation
In order to complement such a historic occasion, Nikka has went to extra lengths in designing an elegant presentation that will stand out among even the most distinguished collections. The beautiful black bottles emblazoned with an outline of each distillery take the iconic look of Nikka bottles to the next level. Included with each bottle is an immaculate wooden box that doubles as a display stand, the perfect showcase for such remarkable whisky.
