Yamazaki, the oldest distillery in Japan
Yamazaki, in the outskirts of Kyoto, has been famous for its pure water and rich nature, as well as the only remaining tea house of Senno Rikyu, one of the greatest founders of Japanese tea ceremony. Along with such natural conditions, its modest humidity from the river also helps make the place suitable for making whiskey. The harmony of the nature with the art of craftsman gives the rich and smooth taste of Suntory Yamazaki Single Malt Whisky.
This distillery is the oldest in Japan, made in 1923, and has made the history of Japanese whiskey.
