TOUCHED BY THE HAND OF SHINJIRO TORII, YAMAZAKI 55 REACHES OUT ACROSS TIME.
A spiritual blend highlighting the Mizunara cask whisky distilled in 1960 under the supervision of founder Shinjiro Torii and the White Oak cask whisky distilled in 1964. Each matured, amber drop reveals a complex and mystical Yamazaki-ness the world has yet to discover.
Yamazaki 55 is the House of Suntory’s tribute to the passage of time.
Introducing Single Malt Whisky Yamazaki 55 Years Old. The oldest single malt whisky in the history of the House of Suntory.
In its much anticipated first release of the Yamazaki 55, the House of Suntory pays tribute to the passage of time. It was in Showa 38 (1963) that Kotobukiya was renamed Suntory after Keizo Saji succeeded his father, founder Shinjiro Torii as the House’s Second Generation Master Blender. Keizo was charged to bring his father’s dream to life, creating not only the quality liquid gold but a quintessentially Japanese experience and lifestyle that rooted Suntory Whisky as the people’s choice.
