product Details

Yamazaki 1979 Single Mizunara Sherry Cask #RF1013

Suntory’s flagship distillery, Yamazaki was founded by Shinjiro Torii in 1923. The town of Yamazaki was chosen to be the site of Japan’s first commercial distillery due to its very ‘Scottish’ climate, and with it being 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 11:11am.

Single cask Yamazaki is very rare and hard to find. This Japanese Oak Cask release was distilled in 1979 and matured in a Mizunara wood sherry butt, #RF1013, before being bottling in 2002. 

Bottle number 196 of 294.
