"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."

Those close connections between Scotland and Japan were reinforced last night when dekantā, billed as the online retailer with the world’s largest selection of Japanese whisky, released its first private-label, single-cask bottling.

“Taking inspiration from Western winemakers, while developing their own techniques, methods and grapes best suited to the climate, Japanese wine producers are really starting to gain momentum,” said dekantā founder and director Makiyo Masa. “Japanese wine has quickly grown into a strong, complex category in the wine world, and the best is yet to come,” he added.
Until very recently, dekantā has been home to the world’s largest online selection of authentic Japanese spirits, which the company says it has been delivering to 127 countries across the continents. On March 13, 2018, the company announced its launch of dekantā cellar, a collection of 40 red wines from Japan, available through the same digital portal as spirits and delivered to the same 127 countries.
