About Kikori Japanese Rice Whiskey
Kikori Japanese Rice Whiskey is a unique and elegant spirit that offers a delicate and complex flavor profile. Distilled from rice, it is crafted in Japan using a combination of modern and traditional techniques, resulting in a smooth and refined taste.
Little Known Fact
Kikori is aged for three years in American oak, French Limousin oak, and Sherry casks, giving it a depth of character and complexity that is unmatched.
On the nose, Kikori offers hints of toasted rice, almond, and vanilla, while the palate is rich and complex with notes of caramel, spice, and a subtle fruitiness. The finish is smooth and satisfying, with a hint of oak and a gentle warmth.
Kikori's delicate and complex flavor profile makes it the perfect ingredient for a Japanese Highball. Simply pour 2 oz of Kikori over ice in a highball glass and top with soda water. Garnish with a twist of lemon peel for a refreshing and sophisticated cocktail.
Recommended by Caer Maiko & Sharon Yeung and selected as a recommended spirit to pair with Shaker & Spoon’s Daijoubu 2 Box.
“Being as Kikori Japanese Whiskey is derived from rice, it was a no-brainer that this would lend a clean yet luscious backbone to the cocktails in this box. Kikori’s stone fruit notes and velvety texture work incredibly well in a cocktail but are also so enjoyable when sipped neat!”
Kikori is made from a unique blend of malted and unmalted rice that is distilled in small batches using traditional copper pot stills. The resulting spirit is aged for three years in a combination of American oak, French Limousin oak, and Sherry casks, giving it a depth of character and complexity that is truly exceptional.

I am not a fan of whiskey. As a matter of fact, my best friend and I had tried many brands and drink recipes while watching Mad Men. I gave my son many brands of whiskey because it just wasn't my thing. I don't know why but I decided to try Kikori Japanese Rice Whiskey. It was smooth and mixed well with some Asian drink recipes. Although I am more a fan of vodka, I will continue to mix this with some exotic ingredients for a change of pace.Best ForRated -2.0 on a scale of minus 2 to 2
