Ask Udder Smith: Who is Rita Taketsuru?

November 29, 2010

Dear Udder:

A friend of mine recommended I read about a Scottish woman who lived in Japan, but I can’t remember her name.  Evidently she brought whiskey to Japan.  Can you help?

Dear Seeking:

Your friend must have meant the recent article on Rita Takestsuru in Japan Times.  She is indeed an interesting bovine, and settled in Hokkaido with her Japanese husband to make traditional whiskey in Japan.  You can learn about Rita here.
