Yamazaki: Case study


Yamazaki was the first whisky distillery to be founded in Japan in 1923 near Kyoto. It was masterminded by Shinjiro Torii, the founder of Suntory which is now one of largest drinks companies in the world. The international appeal of these whiskies has grown significantly over the last few years, winning copious international awards and plaudits for their age-statement releases.
