Suntory's Cask Collections Arrive in Europe

The Drinks Business yesterday (27th November, 2013) informed its subscribers of Suntory's limited edition release launch in Europe. The launch, which many have been hoping for consists of both the 2013 Yamazaki and Hakushu Cask Collections. According to the article the popular lineup debuted this week. The drinks trade publication notes that the exclusive availability of the 2013 collection in the European market corresponds with anniversaries of both distilleries. The 2013 Mizunara bottling from the collection unfortunately didn't hit the shelves in Japan this year, perhaps this was concerning volume and to make it available in other markets. For the full article written by Gabriel Savage take a look (here).

  1. now only if i could get my hands on these the sherried and the mizunara ones... probably gonna be real tough.

    1. Good luck Andy. Unfortunately I don't know the bottling outturn for each release, but I would presume it would be on par with the releases in Japan. The Hakushu Sherry Cask 2013 was fantastic - one of my favourite whiskies in 2013.
