In 1923, Suntory's founder Shinjiro Torii started creating Japan's first whiskey distillery in Yamazaki on the outskirts of Kyoto, which then became the birthplace of Japanese whiskey. The first malt whiskey to come from Japan, Yamazaki has helped Japanese whiskey gain worldwide popularity. Their whiskeys are hand-crafted in their distillery at the base of Mountain Tennozan, where the rivers, climate, and humidity are the perfect environment for whiskey maturation. The climate varies considerably from Scotland but still produces top class whiskey.
