product Details

Yamazaki 10 Year Old

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.

The 10 year old was introduced to the distillery's core range in 1995, and is bottled from American oak casks. Despite being well-regarded, it was discontinued around 2015 as Suntory was facing up to stock shortages in its warehouses after the unprecedented demand for Japanese whisky in the 21st century.
