The story of Yamazaki is essentially the story of the whisky industry in Japan.

Yamazaki is the country’s oldest and first whisky distillery. The idea of the industry’s pioneer and legendary father of Japanese whisky, Shinjiro Torri, was to found a distillery and corner the potential market for whisky sales in Japan in 1923. It is located in the rural village of Yamazaki, which lies between the cities of Osaka and Kyoto. The current distillery has a capacity of seven million litres per year, making it one of the largest whisky distilleries in the world and beating most in Scotland. It also has the busiest visitor centre of all Japanese distilleries and this includes a bar that contains over 120 different Yamazaki whiskies of differing ages and cask types.
