The MISAKA brand draws inspiration from the pristine natural spring water source located 250 meters beneath the MISAKA mountain range in Japan’s Yamanashi prefecture – home to iconic Mount Fuji. This pure water, combined with the rare Mizunara oak casks, imbues the whiskies with a unique and alluring flavour profile.

Global Drinks is confident the MISAKA range will resonate with global consumers seeking exceptional quality and provenance in their whisky. The launch at the TFWA event will provide the opportunity to introduce the brand to key industry stakeholders, including retailers, wholesalers, brand owners, and prominent media outlets.
