Yamazaki 12 Year Old
A very popular expression from Japan, now getting harder and harder to find.
Suntory’s flagship distillery, Yamazaki distillery 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.
The first spirit ran from the stills in 1924, on 11th November at 11:11am.
