R400 000 get you a rare tip­ple

The Citizen (KZN) - - World - Tokyo

– Ja­pan’s Sun­tory Hold­ings un­veiled a lim­ited edi­tion 55-year-old Ya­mazaki sin­gle malt whisky, which it will sell for three mil­lion yen (R400 000) a bot­tle, aim­ing to bol­ster its cre­den­tials as a pre­mium whisky maker.

Only 100 bot­tles will be sold from 30 June, and buy­ers will be cho­sen by lot­tery.

Sun­tory and other pre­mium whisky mak­ers have been faced with de­pleted stocks of aged whiskies af­ter an un­ex­pected surge in pop­u­lar­ity of sin­gle malts in the past decade. –
