Suntory Expands The Sale Of Its Oldest Yamazaki Whisky At $60K Per Bottle

Sep 13, 2021

Category: Vices

Last year, Suntory made waves in the whisky industry when it dropped its oldest expression to date: a 55-year-old Yamazaki single malt. Exclusively available to Japanese residents and only purchasable through a lottery winning, it was, expectedly then, an incredibly difficult (expensive) spirit to score.

Well, as your luck would have it, Suntory has now made its Yamazaki 55-Year a bit more attainable — sort of. Sure, this year’s batch will now be offered in the US, the UK, China, and Taiwan. However, with only 100 bottles in reserve — each priced at $60,000 — you’ll need some pretty deep pockets if you’re hoping to get your hands on one. And it’s for good reason; in addition to a truly exceptional spirit, you’re also getting a gorgeous presentation, with the bottle wrapped in handmade Echizen paper and bound using a Kyo-kumihimo cord. Not ignoring its commitment to give back, though, Suntory has pledged $5,000 from every sale to the White Oak Initiative for the benefit of America’s forests. If you want some yourself, you’ll have to reach out to Suntory for details.

Purchase: $60,000
