ABOUT YAMAZAKI 55
Four different Yamazaki blenders worked to create Yamazaki 55. It started in 1960 when Shinjiro Torii, founder of Yamazaki, commenced the distilling of whiskies aged in Mizunara oak casks. In 1964—the year of the first Tokyo Olympics—Keizo Saji, second master blender of Yamazaki, transferred the whisky to white oak casks.
Yamazaki 55 debuted last year when Japanese citizens were invited to participate in a lottery to allocate 100 bottles. Last August, a bottle was auctioned by Bonhams and sold for $795,000, shattering the record for the most expensive single bottle of Japanese whisky ever sold.
Suntory is donating $5,000 per bottle to The White Oak Initiative, which seeks to nurture sustainable white oak forests in America.
