Suntory Yamazaki Distillery Reviews
한적한 시골마을에 산토리 야마자키 증류소가 있습니다. 미리 예약은 하셔야 합니다. 증류소에서 판매하는 대부분의 위스키를 시음하는 바가 있습니다. (유료 지만, 거의 원가에 가까운 가격으로 판매합니다.) 증류소 투어의 알파이자 오메가라고 할수 있습니다. 위스키를 좋아하는 분이라면 꼭 들러보세요. more »In a secluded countrytown, there is the Suntory Yamazaki Distillery. Reservations must be made in advance. There is a bar tasting of most whiskies sold at distilleries. (I sell it at a price that is almost costly.) It's the alpha and omega of distillery tours. If you're a whiskey lover, don't miss it.
社員旅行で、サントリーの山崎蒸留所さんに伺わせてもらってます。 専門のスタッフさんが、屋内をくまなく案内して頂いて、樽の使い道や歴史など教えて頂きました。 もちろん、1番大好きなサントリープレミアムモルツの試飲も楽しめます。 案内が終わった後は、記念撮影をしてスタートラインのすぐ近くの物販コーナーで、ボールペンを買わせて頂きました。 物販の下には、樽で作ったワイナリーのような空間が演出してます。 ... more »On a company trip, I have asked Mr. Yamazaki Distillery in Suntory to visit me. Our professional staff showed us around the house and taught us how to use barrels and their history. Of course, you can also sample your favorite Suntory Premium Malts. After the guidance was over, i took a commemorative photo and bought a ballpoint pen at the sales corner right next to the start line. Under the sales, the space like a winery made of barrels is produced. Thank you very much!
Make sure to book way ahead of time. Tour is short but interesting; photos are mostly allowed. Best part is the tasting that comes at the end. Can also linger around at bar afterwords, cash bar.
Didn't make a booking and wasn't able to be admitted initially due to full capacity. I was approached within the free museum about an extra open space, which I happily accepted. The tour was great, and the tasting was truly something unique. Overall a great highly regarded experience, don't pass up on this if you are within the vicinity. Even so, I feel its worth travelling a far distance for.
