Pick a Nikka

Ninety nine years ago, Masataka Taketsuru travelled to Scotland to study chemistry and to learn the secrets of whisky making. On returning to Japan, he founded Nikka Whisky and built his first distillery at Yoichi. Join us to find out more about his legacy, to taste some of the distillery’s world-class whiskies … and to pick your favourite dram.

  • Nikka Taketsuru Pure Malt
  • Super Nikka
  • Nikka Coffey Malt
  • Nikka Coffey Grain
  • The Nikka 12yo
  • Nikka Taketsuru 17

The tasting will be on Thursday 15th June at 7:30pm (for an 8pm start) in the back room of The Lord Nelson Inn on Trafalgar Street, close to Brighton Station.

We use Eventbrite to manage our bookings, but in order to keep costs down we use cash payments –  the tasting will cost £25 per person on the night.


This tasting is now at capacity, and there’s already a long waiting list!
