The House of Suntory partners eight esteemed Singapore restaurants for ‘House of Suntory Masters’ to celebrate the centenary of the establishment of its iconic Yamazaki distillery.

It’s been 100 years since Shinjiro Torii first founded the whisky distillery we know as Yamazaki. And while a century may not sound much compared to more venerable Scottish whisky distilleries, the founding of Japan’s first-ever purpose-built distillery for making whisky just outside Osaka back in 1923 opened the way to whisky making in the Land of the Rising Sun. Today the pioneering Yamazaki makes some of the most coveted whisky around the world, and the rest, as we deign to say, is history.

To commemorate the milestone, the House of Suntory is hosting ‘House of Suntory Masters’, partnering eight illustrious restaurants in Singapore for a celebration of whisky-fuelled gastronomy.

What’s particularly special about these experiential dinners? Each of them will feature new centennial limited releases of Yamazaki and Hakushu – the Yamazaki 18 Year Old Mizunara and Hakushu 18 Year Old Peated Malt.

The series of eight exclusive House of Suntory Masters dinners allow guests the unique opportunity to delve deeper into Suntory’s range of rare and limited spirits, accompanied by the finest cuisine specially created for this occasion only.

The eight ‘House of Suntory Masters’ partner venues are:

  • La D’Oro
  • Takayama
  • Sushi Sato
  • Canchita
  • Summer Pavilion 
  • Béni
  • Whitegrass
  • Hanazen

For example, Japanese-French omakase and brasserie Hanazen by Ysuke Takada will be offering a special six-course dinner pairing its charcoal-grilled inspired delights with a range of Yamazaki whiskies including the Yamazaki 18 Year Old Mizunara, while Michelin-starred Chinese restaurant Summer Pavilion is unveiling a seven-course Cantonese menu to accompany the same whiskies.

Then there’s fine-dining Japanese omakase restaurant Takayama, which has put together an exclusive six-course omakase experience to go with those Yamazaki whiskies plus Suntory’s Roku Gin. For something totally gastronomically offbeat, try the Nikkei cuisine from Peruvian restaurant Canchita, paired with specially concocted cocktails made with Suntory’s portfolio of spirits.
