The tour was very informative and the tasting very good. Only problem is they don't sell everything you taste and they are only allowed to sell a limited number of bottles. The group before us bought almost everything so there was no much for sale.

A huge fan of Japanese whiskey. Tour to the distillery is highly recommended to all Japanese whiskey lovers. Book ahead. There’s whiskey tasting and a lesson in making the perfect Highball! If only we were allowed to purchase more Yamazaki whiskey 🥃.
