UK-Japan News August 2017

Japan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has honoured James Millar with a Foreign Minister’s Commendation for his work in promoting mutual understanding between Japan and the United Kingdom with The Glover whisky, Insider.co.uk reported on 25 July.

The whisky blends Scottish and Japanese malts and is named after the celebrated “Scottish Samurai” Thomas Blake Glover (1838–1911). Millar also established the first Scottish government cross-party group on Japan, and a Japanese language group.

He co-founded Fusion Whisky Ltd in 2015, to continue developing different blends.
