Yamazaki 12 Year Old, Suntory N.V.


Shinjiro Torii founded the Yamazaki Distillery, just outside the Japanese city of Kyoto, in 1923. Initially, Torii's creations flopped, as he struggled to make whiskies that were both pleasing to the very particular Japanese tastes as well as his own European preferences. After much experimentation, he succeeded, and today Yamazaki Single Malt regularly wins awards, not only in Japan but around the world.
