Now one of the largest makers of distilled beverages on Earth, the House of Suntory started out a bit smaller. Founded in 1899, this company aimed to make Japanese spirits that were suited for the tastes and palates of the Japanese people. By adding whisky to this list of spirits in 1923, the founder of the company, Shinjiro Torii, wanted to create his own whisky on Japanese soil and with a Japanese approach. The first Japanese whisky was, therefore, born on the outskirts of Kyoto and has only been getting more popular since.
Of all the fine products offered by Suntory, Hibiki Harmony is a true gem. This blended whisky is made of a carefully selected collection of at least ten whiskies from the three Suntory Distilleries, located all around Japan. The malt whiskies are sourced from Yamazaki and Hakushu while the grain whisky comes from Chita. The final product is calm, complex, and, above all, harmonious.
The bottle itself is a work of art. With its 24 sides in honour of the traditional Japanese 24 seasons in a year, clean label with eye-catching calligraphy, and the shining golden amber whisky waiting within, who could resist a bottle of whisky this good? Light and approachable, this is an elegant spirit that is a perfect entry into the world of Japanese whiskies. It will keep you coming back for more.
