Distillery Information

The Beginnings The first Japanese whisky distillery was established in 1924 by Shinjiro Torii, who wanted to bring the taste of Scotland to Japan. Torii hired Masataka Taketsuru, who had studied whisky-making in Scotland, to help establish the distillery and produce the first Japanese whisky.
Japanese whisky is often distilled twice, much like Scottish single malt whisky. However, there are some Japanese whiskies that are distilled up to four times, which is far more than any Scottish distillery will do.The Yamazaki Distillery is Japan's first and oldest malt whisky distillery established in 1923 by Suntory's founder Shinjiro Torii. Inspired by traditional Scottish whisky, Torii envisioned a Japanese approach by choosing a terrain and climate completely different to those of Scotland to create a unique kind of whisky.
