Lots of Whiskey
Suntory Yamazaki Whisky Distillery

I made my first visit in a long while to the Suntory Whisky Distillery down in Yamazaki today. I wrote about it five years ago in Japan’s First Whisky: Suntory’s Yamazaki Distillery.

The grounds also includes a whisky museum, which I wrote about at about the same time in Suntory Yamazaki Distillery Photogenic Whisky Museum.

I sure hope those bottles are glued to the shelves. The thought of an earthquake boggles the mind.

They are. —Jeffy

Been there two consecutive years(2015 and 2016). The tasting room is god sent in terms of price. The gift shop had virtually no whiskeys left when I went in Oct. Would love to go back this year again 🙂 I miss my Yamazaki 25, Hibiki 30 and Hakushu 🙁
