Suntory Yamazaki 12yo Whisky

70cl | 43% ABV | Japan

Yamazaki Whisky is Suntory's flagship whisky, its 12 Year Old Single Malt has a multi-layered, spiced and fruity taste thanks to maturing in casks of three different types of wood: American, Spanish and Japanese oak.

This whisky is made from 100% malted barley, it’s fermented with the softest water from three rivers between Mt.Tennozan and Mt. Otokoyama. The wash is distilled through copper-pot stills that are the first of their kind outside of Scotland.

About this product

One of the pioneering Japanese Malts, it's a fantastic expression for those looking to learn more about the country's Whisky heritage. It's got fruity sweetness and a tropical finish; one that appeals across the spectrum of whisky drinkers.

In 1923, Suntory's founder Shinjiro Torii founded the Yamazaki Distillery - Japan’s first and oldest malt whisky distillery. Always interested in Western pursuits, he mastered the techniques of mixing and blending through his teenage apprenticeships.

Yamazaki Distillery is nestled on the periphery of Kyoto, this region was formerly referred to as "Minaseno", where one of the purest waters of Japan originates – here the Katsura, Uji and Kizu rivers converge, providing a unique misty climate.
