On our way to Tokyo, before we dropped of the car we visited the very famous and one of the best Japanese whiskey -Yamazaki and Hakushu Distillery. Unfortunately, the old whiskey bottles were not in stock and it is hard to find them hand on anywhere in Japan unless you get lucky.
The first ever whisky distillery in Japan is worth the iconic status it has gained over the years. There is a whisky library, which is a sight to behold with over 7,000 cataloged bottles on display. In fact, in 2013, the World Whiskies Awards named Yamazaki 25 Year Old the World’s Best Single Malt Whisky.
