The Taketsuru Pure Malt range is a blended malt named in honour of Masataka Taketsuru, the father of Japanese whisky. He is the first Japanese who mastered whisky-making in Scotland and produced one of the first genuine whiskies in Japan. Masataka’s vision of whisky was formed by his experience in Scotland where he learned that the rich natural resources surrounding a distillery were essential for great whisky making.
