The Yoichi Distillery (Nikka Whisky Co. Hokkaido Plant) rests about 50km west of Sapporo City in southern Hokkaido, which is the northernmost of Japan's four principal islands, and was one of the last Japanese frontiers to be developed. This distillery produces rich, peaty and masculine malt. The whisky gets its distinct aroma and body from direct heating distillation, in which the pot stills are heated with finely powdered natural coal--the traditional method that is hardly ever used today, even in Scotland.

Nikka single cask malt whisky "YOICHI" marked the highest score in "THE WORLD'S WHISKY TASTING 2001(3 continents, 47 brands, 62 judges)"in "WHISKY MAGAZINE".

The Yoichi Distillery was recognized in the register material cultural assets of Japan in 2004.
