Comments by Tadashi Sakuma

It is a great honor that Nikka Coffey Vodka was awarded Vodka Category’s top “TROPHY” at ISC 2018, the fourth for Nikka following past three trophies in the whisky category.
We are also extremely pleased that another expression from our “Coffey range” has won this award, following Coffey Malt’s “TROPHY” in 2017. It would be a proof that our Coffey distilled products have been acknowledged by the top professionals in the world for its taste and quality, not only in the whisky category but also in white spirits.
We feel so much encouraged and energized to keep on pursuing high quality products and to provide connoisseurs around the world with more excitements.


About Nikka Coffey Vodka

Nikka Whisky produces 4 distinctive expressions distilled in Coffey Stills. The Coffey Still is a very traditional type of a continuous still, which was invented by Mr. Aeneas Coffey in 1830. Nikka Whisky’s founder, Masataka Taketsuru valued the feature of this type of still, which retains the flavors of ingredients and also creates a distinctive texture. Today Nikka owns two sets of Coffey Stills.
Nikka Coffey Vodka is a vodka with flavor and texture. The secret behind this extremely smooth mouthfeel and delicate taste is the quality of Coffey distillates and the preciseness in blending.
This vodka with zesty notes, rich sweetness and milky mouthfeel perfectly captures the exquisite fullness brought by the Coffey Still.
