Onikishi Japanese Blended Whisky
Onikishi derives its name from the Japanese words ‘Oni’ meaning demon and ‘Kishi’ meaning knight. The whisky is made using spirit matured in white oak barrels.
The premium Japanese blend is described as ‘a splendid modern dram’, which can be served neat, with carved ice, or mixed into cocktails.
Japan is a land known for his technological marvels yet its deeply rooted cultural heritage and behind this are centuries of mysticism and epic tales of lore. Onikishi is the demon knight bound to our whisky, imbuing it with its strength and vigor, its mystical charm and encapsulating the country’s deep traditions in its newest spirit, capturing the enduring essence of Japan.
