Yamazaki Distillery

Yamazaki Distillery Yamazaki is Japan’s first and oldest distillery, established in 1923 by Suntory’s founder Shinjiro Torii. Inspired by traditional Scottish whisky, Torii envisioned a Japanese approach by choosing a terrain and climate completely different to those of Scotland to create a unique kind of whisky. Yamazaki is thus the birthplace of Japanese whisky.

Nestled proudly on the periphery of Kyoto, this region was formerly referred to as “Minaseno”, where one of the purest waters of Japan originates. Yamazaki is also home to Sen no Rikyu, Master of “The Way of Tea.” Yamazaki is where the Katsura, Uji and Kizu rivers converge, providing a unique misty climate and one of Japan’s softest waters. The diversity of this region’s temperature and humidity creates ideal conditions for cask aging, known as the signature “Suntory Maturation.”

Yamazaki Whisky

Yamazaki is Suntory’s flagship single malt, multi-layered with fruit and Mizunara aromas. From Yamazaki was born the surprising, delicate yet profound experience of a Japanese single malt. Spiritual and deep, its signature multi-layered taste is highly praised by whisky connoisseurs all over the world.

Today, Yamazaki is not only the No.1 single malt whisky in Japan, but is enjoyed in more than 35 countries
