About the Nikka Session
Nikka Session is an exciting new blended malt from Nikka in Japan. Bottled in 2020, Nikka Session is the company’s first world blended whisky. It contains malts from Nikka’s two distilleries, Miyagikyo and Yoichi, as well as Scotch from the famous Ben Nevis distillery (also owned by Nikka). The whisky is a beautiful homage to Nikka founder Masataka Taketsuru and his Scottish wife Rita Taketsuru, who got married a hundred years ago, in January 1920. Masataka was an apprentice at several distilleries in Scotland before returning to Japan and establishing the country’s first whisky industry. He is considered the founding father of Japanese whisky. Nikka Session comes in a stunning blue bottle.
