“Best Single Malt in the World” This highly prized World Whiskies Awards title has been picked up twice (2002 and 2008) by a Yochi single malt. Such recognition was a shock for the Scottish distillers, and a revelation for many whisky fans. The Yoichi distillery, one kilometre from the Sea of Japan, produces a whisky with salty, slightly medicinal notes, not unlike its Scottish cousins from the Isle of Islay.
