THE YAMAZAKI SINGLE MALT
" JAPANESE WHISKY"
Suntory Whisky was founded in 1923 by Shinjiro Tori.
For over three generations, Suntory's master: blenders
have devoted themselves to pursuing the harmony of
Japanese nature and craftsmanship. Shaped through
masterful technique and served with a reverence for
Japanese omotenashi, Suntory whiskies are among
the most awarded and admired in the world.
Yamazaki is the pioneer of single malt Japanese whisky;
born in Japan's first and oldest malt distillery. Established
in 1923 by Suntory's founder Shinjiro Tori, the
Yamazaki Distillery is the birthplace of Japanese whisky.
Nestled proudly on the periphery of Kyoto, in a region
formerly known as "Minaseno," Yamazaki is renowned
for its soft waters. This incomparable quality, combined
with Yamazaki's unique misty climate of varying
temperature and humidity, provides the ideal conditions
for making whisky. Here, its artisans pursue their
founder's legacy through the art of "Tsukuriwake"
-the diversity in the making. Diverse fermentation,
distillation and maturation techniques create the
blending opportunities that are essential to achieving
the signature subtle, refined and complex taste that
is the Yamazaki Single Malt Japanese Whisky.
Deep and multi-layered, Yamazaki is embraced as
the authority of single malt Japanese whisky from
the award winning House of Suntory Whisky.
