product Details

Yamazaki Suntory Pure Malt 12 Year Old / Gold Bottle

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.

An older discontinued version of Suntory Pure Malt, produced using Yamazaki distilled whisky.

These earlier editions focused on the Suntory brand rather than Yamazaki.

Japanese release in a gold covered 75cl bottle.
