For over three generations, the master blenders at Suntory Whisky have devoted themselves to pursuing the harmony of Japanese nature and craftsmanship. One of the most outstanding examples of this pursuit is found in Mizunara, a rare Japanese oak.
The wood from this rare and demanding tree inspired Suntory to take a momentous step forward in whisky making, both in perfecting new cask-making techniques and in creating flavours never before tasted in whisky. In a rare feat of craftsmanship, Suntory’s blenders have brought the essence of the noble Mizunara into a peerless liquid - tantalisingly spicy, reminiscent of incense, and uniquely Japanese.
Revealing their mastery of the Art of Mizunara, Suntory Whisky has launched The Yamazaki Mizunara 2017 Edition, one of the House’s crowning jewels.
This Mizunara edition from The House of Suntory Whisky has been blended from a selection of single malt whiskies aged entirely in Mizunara casks for at least 18 years, and is certainly their most exquisite creation yet. Suntory’s Chief Blender, Shinji Fukuyo believes that each creation is a new journey to achieve a balance of subtlety, refinement and complexity that is the hallmark of all Suntory whiskies.
Presented in a beautiful wooden box crafted from recycled Suntory casks, the Yamazaki Mizunara 2017 Edition will be available to purchase from selected retailers from 3rd October at £1,000 RRP.
