Rare Japanese whisky to sell for R405,000 a bottle. According to an article by Reuters on 31, January 2020, Japan’s Suntory Holdings unveiled a limited edition 55-year-old Yamazaki single malt whisky, which it will sell for ¥3m (R404,710) a bottle, aiming to bolster its credentials as a premium whisky maker.

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

In 2005 the company sold a limited edition of a 50-year-old Yamazaki for ¥1m (R135,000). One of them auctioned by Bonhams in Hong Kong in 2018 fetched HK$2.695m (R5m).
