Here’s Your Shot at Buying the Oldest Japanese Whisky Ever Bottled


February 5, 2020 Drinks By

Despite continued shortages and discontinuations, Japanese whisky giant Yamazaki is pushing out its oldest and most expensive bottle ever: Yamazaki 55-Year-Old.

The release surpasses a 50-year-old offering Yamazaki released in the early 2000s, and there are only 100 bottles available. To buy one, you’ll need to win a lottery and have ¥3 million JPY on hand. The application process starts now and runs until February 14. For more info on Yamazaki and Japanese whisky, read our guide.
