Suntory Yamazaki Distillery

  • Suntory Yamazaki distillery established in 1923, by Shinjiro Torii, and it’s first commercial whisky distillery in Japan.

  • Whisky distillery from Osaka in Japan.

  • Produces Single Malt Whisky & has capacity 6 million litres per annum.

  • The distillery is open and owned by Suntory from opening – present.

  • The distillery is surrounded by mountains, the site is often covered with a dense mist, and the warm and humid environment is well suited for Whisky making. In the first 10 years, the legendary Masataka Taketsuru managed Yamazaki, who was known to be the “Father of Japanese Whisky,” and the founder of Nikka Whisky. There are 12 types of stills in Yamazaki, with steel and wooden fermentation tanks. Ex-Bourbon, Sherry, American virgin oak, and Mizunara are generally used for Whisky in the distillery. The 18-Year Yamazaki has earned six consecutive double gold medals at the San Francisco Spirits Competitions between 2008 and 2013. Yamazaki 25 Year Old was awarded “Best Japanese Single Malt” at the 2013 World Whisky Awards. Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2015 awarded Yamazaki Single Malt Sherry Cask 2013 the title of World Whisky of the Year. Yamazaki Distillery Gift Shop, located within Yamazaki Whisky Museum, offers an extensive selection of products that are only available at the distillery, including single malt whiskies and specially designed glassware.
