About the distillery

Yamazaki distillery is a Japanese whisky distillery located in Shimamoto, Osaka Prefecture, Japan.

Opened in 1923, and owned by Suntory, it was Japan's first commercial whisky distillery. Seven thousand bottles of unblended malt whisky are on display in its "Whisky Library".

Other Information

This 2017 Yamazaki release has an 18 year old age statement but is said to contain whiskies aged from 18 years up to 50 years all of which have been matured in casks made from native Mizunara oak wood only grown in Japan and only used by Suntory’s whisky portfolio.

Even the packaging has been taken to the next level with the mulberry Echizen paper label created using traditional Japanese methods and the wooden presentation box created from recycled casks once used to age Suntory whisky.

A truly stunning whisky.
