One of the Japanese whisky giants. Kotobukiya, or as we know them today. Suntory. The company was founded by Shinjiro Torii in 1899, first as an importer of western liquor. As he progressed within the business he decided to build Japan's first distillery. This is where Masataka Taketsuru comes into the picture. He was hired as a distillery executive at Yamazaki. He later left the company to found his own.

Founded in 1923 by Shinjiro Torii, Yamazaki is Japan's first bona fide whisky distillery. Sitting in between Osaka and Kyoto the stills are varied in shape, size, lyne arm position and some are direct fired while others are steam heated. All of which allows for a creation of many different styles of spirit destined for blending as well as bottling as single malt.
