The Pass & Provisions presents Nikka Whisky Dinner
The Pass & Provisions presents Nikka Whisky Dinner, featuring five courses and six whiskys.
Masataka established Nikka Whisky, and built its first distillery in Yoichi, Hokkaido, which, though inconveniently located, he had always considered to be the ideal site in Japan for whisky-making, similar in many ways to the Scottish town where he had studied.
Masataka established Nikka because he was determined to introduce his fellow Japanese to the joys of authentic whisky. In the decades since, as his company developed and the enjoyment of whisky became a fixture in Japan, he remained relentlessly passionate about quality. Never did he allow it to be sacrificed in favor of efficiency.
In that sense, Masataka Taketsuru, Father of Japanese Whisky, sake brewer's son, had never truly left his roots.
