Distillery

The distillery was originally named Sendai and lies to the west of the city. Miyagikyo is owned by Nikka, who also own the Yoichi. Miyagikyo is larger than Yoichi and has a current capacity of 2 million litres per year, but their whisky is less well known. Much of the whisky produced goes in to Nikka’s popular range of blended whiskies with just a small percentage released as single malts. They have a strong cult following and the reputation is starting to build.

 

The most delicate and the least peaty of Nikka's single malts comes from the distillery of Miyagikyo on the island of Honshu.

 

House style: light, flowery, fruity
