product Details

Yamazakura Rare Old / 250th Anniversary 

Sasanokawa Shuzo Ltd was founded in 1765 all though they focused on Sake and Sochu. They moved in to distillation in 1946., Yamazakura distillery was closed in 1998. 

Yamazakura imported bourbon barrels from Kentucky back in the mid 1980s,  They then aged spirit for 10-15 years... before adding it to a vat and then letting it sit for a number of years. When they rediscovered it they filled some Maker's Mark barrels and matured it for a number of years. 

This was then filled into hand blown artisan bottles created by Komure Takahito. 

One of 100 bottles.
