product Details

Nikka Taketsuru 25 Year Old

Nikka was founded in 1934 by Masataka Taketsuru, a former Suntory employee who had studied at the University of Glasgow, and later trained as a blender at the now lost Hazelburn distillery in Campbeltown. Taketsuru opened the Yoichi distillery in the same year as establishing the company, followed by the Nishinomaya and Miyagikyo distilleries in 1959 and 1969, respectively. Since 1989 the company has also has also had a stake in the Scotch whisky industry after they purchased the struggling Ben Nevis distillery. Today they are one of the second largest whisky producer in Japan.

This range of blended malts is named after the Nikka founder. Taketsuru 25 year old was highly acclaimed, but was discontinued alongside the 17 and 21 year old expressions in 2020 after unprecedented 21st century demand for Japanese whisky left even its largest companies suffering from stock shortages.
