Single Grain - 45 % - 70 cl
Atypical whisky, composed in large part of corn and cereals, Coffey Grain is a single grain distilled in Miyagikyo in its two column stills or Coffey type stills. Its fruity freshness and its bouquet of aromas so different from the single malts make it a surprising and seductive whisky by its originality.
Named after its inventor Aeneas Coffey, this traditional still with two continuous columns, the "Coffey Still", produces quality grain whiskies initially intended for blended whiskies. Imported from Scotland in 1963, Nikka has remained faithful to these traditional stills, which retain more character and provide a distinct texture from modern, 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.
