Nikka Warns G&G Kabuto
Online Scams and Counterfeit Products

It has come to our attention that several customers who have purchased a product that claims to be G&G Kabuto, from various online sites, have received either empty bottles or counterfeit products. It is regrettable that such things are happening.

NGK-01 G&G Kabuto (43% ABV, 750ml), which comes with a samurai helmet decoration, is an exclusive product for selected duty-free outlets only in Japan. While we take possible actions to have such sites deleted, we highly recommend customers to purchase at authorized retailers as any other distribution could be linked with illegal transactions.

We appreciate your thoughtful understanding.
