Suntory is now taking ballots for online lottery sales of the 2022 limited editions of Hibiki and Yamazaki.
Hibiki Blossom Harmony was unveiled last year for the first time. In the case of Yamazaki Limited Edition, 2021 marked its triumphant return after four-year hiatus.
Either bottle will set you back 11,000 yen after tax. There are 1000 bottles of each up for grabs via this online lottery. If you want to hit the pavement to look, the release date of both bottles is May 23, 2022.
You have until April 20 23:59 JST to enter both lotteries. Good luck! You’ll need it: Suntory apparently received over 200,000 entries for their online lottery for Yamazaki 55. I’m guessing they get similar numbers for these other official lotteries too.
