YAMAZAKURA Blended Whisky
Yamazakura takes its name from two Japanese symbols: “Yama” meaning “mountain”, and “Sakura” which refers to cherry trees, symbols of ephemeral beauty. This YAMAZAKURA BLENDED WHISKY is a collaboration between Sasanokawa Shuzo Distillery and Shin Group, using four malt and grain whiskies which are aged in Bourbon Casks.
Sasanokawa Shuzo was founded in 1765 and acquired a license to produce whisky in 1946. Since then, we have been producing it as the oldest whisky distillery in the Tohoku area. The product was finished mild and smooth in character with a strict selection of our unblended whisky.
