Yamazakura Fine Blended 700ML
The liqueur firm Sasanokawa Shuzo developed sake and shochu dating back to 1765. Located in the central Fukushima prefecture town of Kōriyama, their range extended to include whisky sometime in 1946 before Japan’s whisky boom started.
Transcribing to “mountain cherry trees” releases from Yamazakura barely make it from Japan, including this special edition of Fine Blended Whisky launched in 2015. At 40 per cent ABV it is distilled.
