Suntory’s flagship distillery, Yamazaki was founded by Shinjiro Torii in 1923. Moreover, the town of Yamazaki was chosen to be the site of Japan’s first commercial distillery due to its very ‘Scottish’ climate, and it is an area where three rivers converge. In its early days, Yamazaki produced both malt and grain for Suntory’s blends, but the opening of the Chita distillery in 1972 allowed the company to focus on its single malt brand. It is now one of the world’s most desirable. The first spirit ran from the stills in 1924, on 11th November at 11:11 am. In Conclusion, this is one of the oldest expressions of Yamazaki ever bottled and is presented in a stunning hard wooden case.
