At the end of last year, we reported that Nikka was going to introduce a new addition to its permanent range, the Nikka Coffey Malt. We also mentioned that it would be launched in Europe and that it would only be available there for the time being. Well, it’s out now and to mark the occasion, Nikka's European distributor (La Maison du Whisky) has teamed up with Takanori Murata (of Japanese pastry salon Walaku in Paris) to develop two original wagashi.
mizu-yokan, and topped with a syrup made with Nikka Coffey Malt.
It’s wonderful that Japanese whisky has found a home away from home in Paris and we’re sure LMdW has lots more up their sleeve to celebrate this, the 80th anniversary year of Nikka (and Yoichi distillery). We’ll keep you posted, as always. And now we’re off to make that Coffey Grain Old-Fashioned…
