Miyagikyo Apple Brandy Finish Single Malt (47% ABV) and Yoichi Apple Brandy Finish Single Malt (47% ABV) are both non-age-stated bottlings, which were finished in their respective apple brandy casks for 6 months.
|Nikka celebrates its founders with two new apple brandy finished bottlings|
After marrying, Masataka Takesturu and Jessie Roberta (Rita) Cowan, moved to Japan a few years later and in 1934 founded Nikka, which earned them the nickname of mother and father of Japanese whisky.
Apples are a very strong symbol for Nikka as Masataka, encouraged by Rita, started his business with the production of apple juice and jam from local Hokkaido apples while they waited for the first whiskies to mature.
Miyagikyo Apple Brandy Finish Single Malt and Yoichi Apple Brandy Finish Single Malt, which are being distributed in the UK by Speciality Brands, will be available from specialist retailers later this month for a RRP of £195.00 each.
