Introducing the finest whiskies from Japan


The Number One Drinks Company was founded in August 2006 to import and distribute Japan's finest whiskies throughout Europe.

Devotees of Japanese whisky since the 1990s, the company's founders were aware that many of these fantastic whiskies were difficult for enthusiasts to find outside Japan.

The company began trading in September 2006 with an initial shipment of award-winning single malts from the defunct Hanyu Distillery.

Whiskies are sourced in Japan by David Croll and samples are assessed by a tasting panel prior to selection; casks are then purchased, bottled and shipped to Marcin Miller in the UK to be sold to specialist retailers and venues in the on-trade.
