The House of Suntory probably needs no introduction, since it’s one of the oldestand largest Spirit makers in Japan. It was founded in 1899 by Shinjiro Torii, a demigod of all things booze. When Japan entered the modern world of industry and innovation, Shinjiro decided to find Sake a few friends from the West. But his mission wasn’t simply blending imported liquors – he wanted to come up with Spirits that would be unmistakablyJapanese. After Suntory introduced the first Single Malt Whisky made in Nippon, anything was possible.
