 Export of Malt whisky and Blended whisky made in Japan


Supporting the Overseas Expansion


Due to the worldwide consumption boom of whisky, "single malt whiskey" has been recognized as a luxury item in the whisky market, and whisky distilleries in each region have achieved record exports.

The consumption of Japanese whisky has nearly doubled over the past 10 years, marking an unprecedented heyday. Due to its high popularity, some products of whisky unblended sake ran short and it was forced to stop selling. Over the past 10 years, Suntory's "Yamazaki", "Hakushu" Nikka's "Taketsuru" and "Yoichi" have increasingly won international awards.
In addition, the brewing techniques of breweries in various parts of Japan have been improved, and highly aromatic whisky is being produced every day by taking advantage of the region, climate and water resources. Japanese whisky is one of the world's top five whisky producing regions (Scotland, Ireland, the United States, Canada, and Japan). The quality of Japanese whisky has acquired brewing techniques comparable to those of its home, and it has become a place that attracts the attention of whisky lovers.

MK Trading will quickly supply your favorite brand of Japanese whisky overseas.
