The Sasanokawa Shuzo distillery was founded in 1765 in Koriyama, near Lake Inawashiro in the Fukushima region (Japan).
Initially rice liqueurs, sake and shochu were prepared in it. Almost 200 years later, they decided to immerse themselves in the whiskey market in 1946, producing very high quality whiskeys and limited editions that are exported all over the world.
The Yamazakura takes its name from two Japanese symbols “Yama”, which means “mountain” and “Zakura”, which means cherry tree.
Japanese whiskey made from a combination of four carefully selected malt and grain whiskeys and aged in American oak barrels that have previously contained bourbon.
