Oku-Aizu Whisky, distilled from rice

Country Japan
Prefecture Fukushima
Producer Nekka


Spirit Type Whisk(e)y

Oku-Aizu is a valley located in the southwest of Fukushima prefecture, in the heart of Echigo Mountain range. It is formed by Tadami River and is home to a majestically rough nature.

Aged in barrel for three years, yet clear in color and totally light on its feet with rice and sake characteristics that set it apart from other rice whiskies. There are very few rice whiskies on the market and we are lucky to be getting an allocation of the 100 bottles sent to the USA from this teensy distillery.

About the Producer

Nekka is one of the smallest distilleries in Japan. They are located in the tiny mountain village of Tadami, which receives some of the heaviest snowfall in Japan. Nekka Distillery is a project of heart and community. Founded by 5 sake rice farmers, it was initially conceived with the goal of keeping young people in Tadami and preserving the rural landscape for future generations. Everything is brewed and distilled from the rice they grow, using proprietary yeasts.
