Product Description

Gold - 2013 International Spirits Challenge

Nikka Coffey Grain is an original single grain whisky, distilled mainly from corn in a Coffey still. While single malt whisky is already well established among a wider audience, the single grain category is little known outside of connoisseur circles, mainly because of its rarity. A single grain whisky generally serves as a base for blends, alongside malt whiskies, and are very seldom bottled on their own.

The Coffey still is named after its inventor Aeneas Coffey. In 1830, the French-born Irishman perfected this technique, which would become widely adopted by the Scots for the production of blends.The distillation process is continuous, whereas the pot stills which are used in single malt production require two separate distillations.
