The Sasanokawa Shuzo liquor company has been producing sake and shochu dating back to 1765. Based in the city of Kōriyama of the central Fukushima prefecture, their portfolio expanded into whisky sometime in 1946 before the start of Japan’s whisky boom. Translating to “mountain cherry trees,” Yamazakura releases hardly make it out of Japan, like this limited edition Fine Blended Whisky that was made available in 2015. It is bottled at 40% ABV.
