Although Japan has been producing whisky for almost 100 years, Japanese whisky only recently was recognized outside of Japan. Brands like NIKKA, HIBIKI, HAKUSHU and YAMAZAKI are now widely known and brands smaller distillileries such as MARS, YAMAZAKURA and AKASHI also start to have fans all over the world.
At NIHON ICHIBAN we try to provide you with a broad range of different Japanese whiskies in terms of casks, blend and age.
Due to the sudden high global demand many famous whisky brands are very hard to get - even in Japan. We occasionally receive a few bottles of these brands, which we then immediately make available on our shop.
Since March 15, 2018 Japan Post does not allow alcohol above 24% to be shipped by air anymore for safety reasons raised by Japanese air cargo companies.
All prices of whiskies sold on NIHON ICHIBAN now include FREE SHIPPING by Surface mail. Surface mail takes about 2-3 months until delivery with tracking and insurance.
