Japanese Whisky

In 1924, Shinjiro Torii founded Yamazaki distillery and hired Matesaka Taketsuro, an experienced distiller who had learned his craft in Scotland. Japanese whisky has since blossomed. Distilled and matured in a similar way to Scotch whisky, while there few Japanese distilleries their product is in very high demand. Some Japanese Whiskies, such as Karuizawa, are among the rarest and most sought-after in the world. Characterised by harmony of flavour, the occasional use of native Mizunara oak casks has given some Japanese whiskies a distinctive style.
