    PS. I would not blame Nikka too harshly. I think their view is that these are their Coffey sltils and so they give the tastings for them next to their current location at Miyagikyou.They never deliberatively mislead people and in fact have explicitly stated the origin in their press releases. The vast majority of consumers would not give two figs about what we are talking about and a marketing strategy that ignored that fact and went on about an old distillery long closed would just make it harder for most consumers to understand Nikka and get to grips with the really important thing, which is the whisky.For those of us who do want to know these details (most of whom are going to be Japanese single malt fans), their press releases have explicitly stated that it comes from Nishinomiya. It is only really the fact that those press releases are not available in English/other foreign languages (as far as I know; they may be) that has led to this confusion. And we are a tiny tiny part of their market.
