Created in honor of the wedding on January 8, 1920 in Glasdow of the founder of Nikka Masataka Taketsuru with Jessie Roberta Cowen, better known as Rita, Miyagikyo Apple Brandy Wood Finish is a limited edition of the single malt from the Miyagikyo distillery.

For the occasion, barrels of apple brandy were used for a finishing for a few months. Apples being a significant symbol of Nikka's history because encouraged by Rita, the founder at the beginning produced apple juice and jam while waiting for his first whiskies to mature.

Its complex and gourmet profile expresses a rich aromatic palette on the nose with fruity notes of baked apples, vanilla, honeydew, spicy and slightly herbaceous. Then in the mouth the creamy texture is marked by malt and notes of exotic fruits such as pineapple, kiwi and lychee. The tasting ends with a long, herbaceous and malty finish with some floral and woody notes.

Product limited to 1 bottles per order.

The distillery

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.
