Japanese whisky is now hailed as among the very best in the world, having won scores of international accolades. In 2014 a Japanese whisky finally won the title of World's Best Whisky in Jim Murray's Whisky Bible and the art continues to thrive as demand across the globe grows. With Japanese whisky consistently outscoring established distilleries in blind tastings and awards, this well-timed book brings to life a whisky that is rapidly capturing the hearts of even diehard traditionalists and becoming sought after in bars across the world.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Highly acclaimed for its quality, whisky from Japan is one of the most sought after liquors in the global drink market, today. 'Whisky Japan, ' a new book from Kodansha, demystifies how the craze emerged by further digging into history, production, marketing, and development of Japanese whisky as well as how to enjoy it." - Chopsticks NY


"Recommended" - Good Spirits News


"It's a great read! I'm so glad there's a book devoted to Japanese whisky. My hope is that people pick it up to educate themselves, especially in this culture where whisky fans want to know more." - Adventures in Whiskey


"Bartenders and guests can't seem to get enough of Japanese whisky; and it doesn't hurt that the spirit has a touch of mystery to it. Letting you in on the secret, this informational read will teach you about its process, its distilleries, its traditions, its history and its future, along with practical tidbits, like the best bars to find Japanese whisky, how to pair it with food and how to use it in a cocktail." - The Tasting Panel


"Whisky Japan by Dominic Roskrow is a fascinating look into the malt whiskies of Japan. . . . The immersive coffee-table-book-size tome transports us to the perfectionist distilleries of Japan, making malted whiskies similar to Scotch. But don't make the mistake of thinking these complex spirits are mere copies of the internationally recognized Scottish whisky. Instead, Roskrow writes, 'Japanese whisky has taken a Scottish blueprint and quite deliberately tweaked it to suit a Japanese palate.' The book helpfully provides information on Japanese-centric bars around the world, including the U.S., where you'll be able to find a hearty selection of bottles. . . . " - Austin American-Statesman


"Dominic Roskrow's book comes to us as a milestone in the history of Japanese whisky appreciation! Well-informed, beautifully-designed and loaded with crucial practical information, it is a must-have for the whisky connoisseur and the younger drinker alike." - Flavien Desoblin, owner of Copper & Oak and The Brandy Library, NYC


"If you are a whisky aficionado then the new book by English writer Dominic Roskrow called "Whisky Japan" should be on your Xmas stocking list. This is an impressive 288-page book that tells the story of how a spirit of no interest or value to whisky drinkers Is now the most sought-after in the industry. . . . The pictures and graphics are stunning. . . . detailed information on each whisky is thorough. . . it just makes you wat to go out and try some of them at a whisky bar.. . . a must-buy." --Spiritsman


"Veteran whisky writer Dominic Roskrow has written one of the most extensive books on Japanese whisky yet with Whisky Japan. . . ." - WhiskyCast Holiday Gift Guide


"This beautifully photographed book gives an inspiring glimpse into the world of Japanese whisky-making. . . . If you're hoping to lose yourself in fantasies of a grand tour of every distillery in Japan, daydream about visiting the world's best Japanese whisky bars, or just enjoy some gorgeous images of some of Japan's most scenic locations, you'll be happy. . . . The most valuable sections of the book are the interviews with master blenders, distillers, distillery operators, bartenders, writers, and other industry insiders sprinkled throughout." - The Whiskey Wash


"An open mind on the subject of whisky is rewarded with myriad pleasures, and this "Essential Guide to the World's Most Exotic Whisky" details a century-old history of making brown spirits right up to the present, when distillers have created cult whiskies. . . . Dominic Roskrow has long experience as an award-winning spirits journalist, and the illustrations, paper stock and presentation are all complementary to the whiskies themselves." - John Mariani's Virtual Gourmet


"This book details the whiskies and their culture, profiles key distilleries and their masters, gives you a list of all the great bars around the world to drink Japanese whisky and even provides some excellent cocktail recipes to make with it. It's an essential read (with gorgeous photos too). . . ." - The Alcohol Professor


." . . a masterpiece, which should be in all spirits and wine libraries around the world." - Edouard Cointreau, President of the Jury - Gourmand World Cookbook Awards


"There is such a cornucopia of information, interesting insights, places to put on your "To Do" list, it is simply a delight to pick up the book and randomly read what it opens to. I continue to do this and find it difficult to not turn to the next page and then on to the next page again and again." - Paul Rest, Your Home with Karie Engel
