Yamazaki: Japan’s First Distillery in Kyoto

NOWNESS continues to reset the online world with its very forward and exclusive content plays; touching everything from fashion to spirits. Their latest is a profile on Japan’s first distillery, Yamazaki. “Tourists to Japan expect to drink two things: sake and green tea (preferably as part of the traditional, meticulous tea ceremony). But the land of the rising sun, which since the mid 20th century has displayed a knack for taking Western inventions and doing them much better than we ever did, is also a haven for whisky lovers—rivaling even Scotland for the production of single malts. One of the oldest of Japanese whiskies and the first to be distilled in the country, Yamazaki Whisky is produced just south-west of Kyoto, at a spot where the Katsura, Uji and Kizu tributaries join the Yodo River.”
