In 1923, Shinjiro Torii, the founder of Suntory and the father of Japanese whisky, built Japan’s first malt whisky distillery in the vale of Yamazaki.
The distillery’s location on the outskirts of Japan’s ancient capital of Kyoto offers pure waters, diversity of climate and high humidity the ideal environment for the maturation of good whisky.
Today, Suntory’s Yamazaki is the most popular whisky in Japan and is enjoyed by whisky connoisseurs the world over.
