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.
