Yoichi whisky gets its distinct aroma and body from direct heating distillation, in which the pot stills are heated with finely powdered natural coal--the traditional method that is hardly ever used today, even in Scotland.
Yoichi is Nikka's first distillery, established on the northern island of Hokkaido in the first half of the 20th century and producing rich and heavy malts. The location was selected for whisky production because of its clean air, just the right humidity for storage, and abundant underground water, filtered through a layer of peat. In Yoichi, Masataka Taketsuru saw numerous reminders of Scotland, and this convinced him that this should be the home of Japanese Whisky.
