Nobu Is Home To The World’s Rarest Japanese Whisky

Step into a Nobu restaurant, and you might be able to enjoy a pour from a very rare bottle of Japanese whisky made by coveted distiller Yamazaki, reports Food & Wine. Yamazaki has earned a reputation for releasing highly sought-after whiskies. In 2021, 100 bottles of Yamazaki from the House of Suntory were released. What made these bottles so special was that the liquor they contained had been aged for 55 years. The anticipated price for the single malt whiskey at release was $60,000 per bottle, but it was selling for at least $600,000 on the secondary market. According to the company’s website, the five-decades-old bottle of whisky was distilled by Master Blender Keizo Saji in 1960.

Feeling discouraged about your ability to try a well-aged whisky from Yamazaki? No need to fret because you can taste an even rarer version of Yamazaki whisky at a Nobu location. According to Food & Wine, Matsuhisa has worked with the Japanese distiller on a private bottling. The single malt whisky is available at some of the most popular Nobu locations, including the restaurant inside Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. In total, Yamazaki made 250 bottles of the special whiskey for Nobu, a first for the company that hadn’t produced whisky for a restaurant or bar since it was built near Kyoto, Japan, in 1923. To try an ounce of the rare Yamazaki whiskey, expect to pay $200, per Food & Wine.
