Yamazaki sales a 55 year old Japanese whisky.

Makers of Japanese whisky for nearly a century, Yamazaki last year released the oldest expression in its storied history. Just one catch: it was only available via a lottery for Japanese residents. They’re now remedying that with a global release. The 55-year-old spirit contains white oak-aged whisky from 1964 and Mizunara-aged whiskey that was distilled in 1960. The final blend, overseen by Chief Blender Shinji Fukuyo, arrives in bottles with engraved characters, a ’55’ filled with gold dust and lacquer, and a neck wrapped in a traditional, handmade Echizen Washi with a braided cord. While more widely available than last year’s release, it’s still limited to just 100 bottles, with $5,000 of each purchase going to benefit The White Oak Initiative, a group committed to preserving America’s white oak forests

Price Tag: $950,000
