Born in 1894 into a family of sake producers, Masataka Taketsuru is considered the godfather of Japanese whisky. After training as a chemist, he was hired by the Settsu Shuzo company which sent him to Scotland in 1918 for an apprenticeship. He developed a passion for whisky and decided to devote his life to it. In 1934, he built Yoichi, his first distillery, on the island of Hokkaido. Its growing success enabled him to establish a second in 1969 near Sendai, Miyagikyo. It is from the single malts produced by these two distilleries that the Nikka whisky group produces its entire range of Japanese whiskies.
Miyagikyo is the second distillery of the Nikka group. Located on the island of Honshu, Japan, it was founded in 1969 by Masataka Taretsuru, the founding father of Japanese whisky. Masataka Taketsuru, before founding Miyagikyo, founded the Yoichi distillery in 1934. The particularity of this distillery compared to Yoichi is its grain whiskey distillation. Miyagikyo produces an unpeated single malt with malted barley from either Scotland or Australia.
