Nikka to crank out 20% more whisky, tasting future demand

Japanese distiller pours $61m into resolving shortage by 2030

At Nikka's Yoichi distillery in Hokkaido, whisky is distilled the old-fashioned way using coal.

TOKYO -- Nikka Whisky Distilling will increase production of raw whisky by 20% in response to surging demand, Nikkei has learned, as the company aims by 2030 to resolve a shortage that forced it to reduce or even end sales of some products.

The Japanese distiller has earmarked 6.5 billion yen ($61 million) through 2021.
