Nikka Whisky is a classic Japanese whisky; so much so, in fact, that the company’s founder, Masataka Taketsuru, is often called the father of Japanese whisky. Bar Nikka Rita in Otaru, is a homage to Taketsuru and his passion for refined spirits. The bar offers a wide range of Nikka whiskies, including rare editions and blends like the Single Cask Unblended Genshu Whisky, which has now been discontinued, and the even rarer Taketsuru 25-year-old for which bottles can cost thousands of dollars. The suave brickwork and wood décor give the bar a cool and assured vibe, that compliments the stellar drinks lineup. This is whisky tasting done right.
