Nobu Is Home To The World's Rarest Japanese Whisky
The first Nobu restaurant was opened in New York City in 1994 by chef Nobu Matsuhisha and actor Robert De Niro. The popular restaurant sets itself apart from others by using a unique flavor fusion of Japanese and Peruvian cuisine, and Nobu is now home to the world’s rarest Japanese whisky by famed distiller Yamazaki.
Chef Matsuhisa has worked with the decades-old Japanese distiller Yamazaki on a private bottling project. The resulting batch of liquor — 250 bottles of a truly unique single-malt whiskey — is exclusively available at some of the most popular Nobu locations, including the restaurant inside Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
Yamazaki has a reputation for highly sought-after whiskies, including a batch that was aged for 55 years, and prior to the collaboration with Nobu, the distiller hadn't produced whisky for a restaurant or bar since it was built near Kyoto, Japan, in 1923. An ounce of Nobu's whisky will run you $200, as reported by Food & Wine.
