A harmonious blend of Japanese and Scottish traditions
The conception of Yamazaki whisky was inspired by the traditional techniques of Scottish whisky making. However, Suntory founder Shinjiro Torii wanted an emphasis on an authentically Japanese approach. Consequently, the Yamazaki distillery was built on the edge of Kyoto to draw from one of the purest water sources in Japan – an essential element that makes Yamazaki whisky so remarkable.
Yamazaki whiskies produce distinctive aromas and deep, complex flavours – a credit to their delicate and meticulous distillation process. From notes of fruit and chocolate to the oriental aromas of Mizunara oak, each Yamazaki whisky offers a unique experience for you.
How to enjoy Yamazaki whiskies
You can enjoy Yamazaki whisky in several ways, including neat, on the rocks, or mixing in a cocktail. It’s recommended to serve Yamazaki whisky by combining the whisky with sparkling water over ice in a highball glass. In a classic method favoured by the Japanese, you can add a twist of lemon as a garnish for a refreshing, zingy burst of citrus in your highball whisky. Consider pairing your Yamazaki whisky with dishes that include fried chicken or other seasoned foods.
