Description

The Yamazaki Distiller’s Reserve is an introductory whisky to the range, shows the impeccable skill of Suntory master blender Shinji Fukuyo. In addition to holding the honour of Japan’s oldest single malt whisky distillery, his team at Yamazaki create myriad complexities of spirit, through varying many facets of the fermentation, distillation and maturation process.

These multifarious barrels are then married with supreme skill to create this delicious bottling. Softly sweet, with oak richness and hints of exotic spice, this is always a pleasure to share.

Suntory Distilleries

In 1923, Suntory's founder Shinjiro Torii began constructing Japan's first whisky distillery in Yamazaki in the outskirts of Kyoto. Known since ancient times as Minaseno and famed for its excellent water, this district became the birthplace of Japanese whisky. In 1929, Suntory introduced Suntory Shirofuda (Japanese for white label), Japan's first genuine domestically produced whisky. Kakubin (square bottle), a premium Japanese whisky, was born in 1937.

In 1973, Suntory built another distillery in Hakushu at the foot of Mt. Kaikomagatake in the Southern Japan Alps. Suntory's range is diverse, including single malts such as Yamazaki, Hakushu and Hibiki, Suntory's flagship blended whisky. The whiskies have reaped a series of awards in the recent years, attesting Suntory's quality and innovation standing in the global whisky arena; At the International Spirits Challenge, one of the world's most authoritative international liquor competitions, Yamazaki 12 Years won  a Gold (2003)  Hibiki 30 Years won the 2004 Trophy, (the highest award in the challenge),  Hakushu 18 Years also captured a Gold Award in 2006.
