Nikka has a habit of surprising with its creativity and experimentation, Coffey Malt is the perfect example. Produced entirely from malted barley, this atypical single malt is distilled in the two Coffey column stills of the Miyagikyo distillery, usually reserved for the distillation of grain whisky.
By integrating Coffey Malt into its range in 2013, Nikka decided to permanently produce a malt whisky distilled in column stills instead of the traditional iron stills. The result is very surprising and appetizing, and will not fail to interest the most curious amateurs.
Its smooth texture and rich aromatic palette make this Coffey Malt a high quality whisky for a unique tasting experience.
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.

Honshu - Miyagi
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.
