PRESS COVERAGE

  • Gear Patrol   •  

    Short of a trip to Japan, dekanta is the defacto choice for westerners shopping for Japanese whisky. The website is home to some of the rarest bottles of Japanese whisky in existence today, and quite a few perennial award-getters.

  • D'Marge   •  

    Premium whisky maker Dekantā have unveiled their latest small batch of single cask Japanese whisky called Kikou. The stunning looking expression is a tribute to Masataka Taketsuru, the man considered the father of Japanese whisky. Accompanying that status is a whisky that has been finished in a cask from the Port Ellen distillery in Scotland. Given that the Port Ellen distillery ceased operation in 1983, the Kikou should make for a great collector’s item without the collector’s price tag.

  • Robb Report   •  

    “These (NAS whiskies) are likely to have a positive impact on the diversity of the Japanese whisky market,” says Masa. “So far, Suntory and Nikka have undoubtedly dominated, but if their popular whiskies become prohibitively expensive, then Japanese whisky fans may turn to smaller producers, such as Chichibu, Eigashima/White Oak and Yamazakura, to name but a few who are making wonderful, interesting whiskies that have yet to gain international recognition.”

  • The Spirits Business   •  

    Online retailer Dekantā has revealed its first private bottling – a six-and-a-half-year-old Port Ellen cask-finished Japanese whisky priced at US$650, called Eigashima 2011 Kikou – Ki Series.

  • Nikkei Asian Review   •  

    "The big two players are Suntory and Nikka, who produce consistently great products," said Makiyo Masa, founder of online Japanese whisky retailer Dekanta. "But there are also smaller brands that taste great and are affordable."
