“In the future, we will continue to strive for the passion and dreams we inherited from Masataka Taketsuru, the father of Japanese whisky and founder of Nikka Whisky. His dream was to make whiskies, which would taste “delicious” to many people. We are very grateful to all the people who support Nikka Whisky.”»
