Japanese whisky has been long close to my palate. The largest Japanese company producing whisky is Suntory, having in their resources the oldest distillery Yamazaki. I wrote an article about the beginnings of Japanese whiskey (it is here but in Polish only). The blog also hosted Yamazaki 10 years old and 18 years old.

Yamazaki is located in the village of the same name, a short distance from Osaka and Kyoto. Thus, being close it is worth to visit the distillery. You have to remember that the tour must be booked at least a day in advance. You can be assisted with reservation by the concierge at the hotel. There should be no problem with it. The distillery is definitely worth a visit, here is one of the best vistor’s center I’ve ever been.

The local single malt production process does not differ from that known in Scotland, in the end it was the Japanese to follow the example of the Scots. Noteworthy is the use of barrels made from Japanese oak – Mizunara, giving the aroma and flavor of raisins, Christmas cake. It’s quite a characteristic element of Japanese whisky.

In the next post I’ll write about tasting in the distillery.

I invite you to photo report. A picture speaks for itself.
