product Details

Yamazaki Sherry Cask 2013

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.

Matured in Oloroso sherry casks for between 12 and 15 years , this whisky won 'Best Whisky in the World' according to Jim Murray and his Whisky Bible the year it was released.

Approximately 16,000 bottles were released.
