Sasanokawa Shuzo’s Facebook page
Sasanokawa Shuzo is a name in sake and shochu making since 1765. Almost 200 years later, in 1946, they expanded their repertoire with whisky. Although Sasanokawa is a rather small distillery they manage to maintain a high quality product which keeps them in competition with the great breweries of the north. Their whisky range goes under the name of Yamazakura.
A fine pot-still malt whiskey. Smooth and easy to drink. Enjoy with some ice, or try it as a Japanese highball(Whisky and soda).
