Atypical whisky, composed largely of corn and others cereals, Coffey Grain is a single grain distilled Miyagikyo in its two stills column or Coffey type stills. Its fruity freshness and its bouquet of aromas so different from single malts make it an amazing and seductive whisky by its originality.
The Coffey Stills
From the name of its inventor Aeneas Coffey, this traditional two-column still, the "Coffey Still", produces quality grain whiskies originally intended for blended whiskies. Imported from Scotland in 1963, Nikka has remained faithful to these traditional stills, which retain more character and give a distinct texture to modern and more efficient multi-column stills. Running these old stills requires real expertise, which Nikka continues to cultivate over the years.

The distillery Miyagikyo
It is in the Miyagi valley at the confluence of the Nikkawa and Hirose rivers that Masataka Taketsuru, founder of Nikka, decided to establish his second distillery after three years of intense research.
Founded in 1969, the Miyagikyo distillery is located in the northeast of Honshu Island in a hilly area covered with maple and coniferous forests. The volcanic soil filters the water from the naturally occurring springs which are known for their purity.
Made of whiskies exclusively distilled, aged and bottled in Japan.
