Yamazaki 50 Years Old is Japan’s most expensive whiskey

1961 might have been a year lost in history and might probably not hold all that much significance in everyone’s life today. Though, we’ve just come across a reddish amber bottle of spirits hailing from that very year that carries along with a significant price tag too! After spending the better half of a century in casks made of mizunara, this Yamakazi single malt whiskey is now up for sale and will be released on the 13th of December. Costing about $12,970 a bottle (with the price tag showing ¥1 million), this 700-milliliter bottle of a 50-year-old whiskey is now Japan’s most-expensive single malt whiskey, and the maker, Suntory, has 150 bottles on offer.

And if you do end up without one of these, with the bottles having tendency to fly off shelves quickly, you could probably purchase a couple of the Yamakazi 10-Year-Old bottles instead, store them in your basement, and present them; to your future generations!
