Hakushu DistilleryHakushu Distillery

The Hakushu Distillery was
founded half a century
after Yamazaki.
Keizo Saji inherited
his father’s vision
in his quest for
and constructed
this second Suntory distillery
in 1973.

Built amidst the deepest forests of Mt. Kaikomagatake in the Japanese Southern Alps, the Hakushu Distillery is without question one of the highest distilleries in the world.
The majestic forest that surrounds the Hakushu Distillery shelters an abundance of plant varieties reflecting the many expressions of Japanese nature.
The malt whiskies born here are simultaneously blessed with a very particular microclimate, verdant forests, and water offering a rare softness and purity, only made possible by filtration of rain and snow through thousand-year-old granite rocks.
