Nikka operate two coffey stills (both of which were imported from Scotland in 1963). They reside at their Miyagikyo distillery and are used to produce grain whisky for their house blends. This Coffey still yields a greater depth of flavour than modern column stills used by other distilleries. As a result Nikka Coffey grain has an exotic, fruity characteristic which has caught the imagination of whisky drinkers around the globe. Nikka Coffey grain is distilled mainly from corn and is a unique dram if ever there was one!
