Suntory Whiskey - The History
The story of Japanese whiskey is the story of Shinjiro Torii, the founder of Suntory.
In 1923, Shinjiro Torii had the idea to create a whiskey that would contain the innermost essence of Japanese nature. Made by the finest craftsmen with patience and a determination to continue perfecting nature's work. He dreamed of a fine, nuanced yet complex whiskey that would satisfy the very discerning tastes of the Japanese.
Inspired by the Scotch whiskey tradition, Torii undertook a Japanese approach to traditional Scotch,
despite the fact that soil and climate conditions were fundamentally different from Scotland's. Torii chose the Yamazaki region in the
near Kyoto as the birthplace of Japanese whiskey.
Hibiki Japanese Harmony
Harmony is an essential element of classical Japanese philosophy. Hibiki Japanese Harmony from Suntory embodies this harmony between man and nature.
Inspired by the diversity of the 24 Japanese seasons and perfected by Suntory's art of whiskey making, Hibiki Japanese Harmony is a careful composition of the finest selected whiskeys of the house of Suntory.
Composed of at least 10 malt and grain whiskeys and matured in five different types of casks from the Yamazaki, Hakushu and Chita distilleries
, this premium whiskey unfolds its unique symphony of aromas and flavours.
At the head of the Suntory Blending Team are Shingo Torii, third-generation Master Blender and grandson of the founder, and Shinji Fukuyo, fourth-generation Chief Blender of Hibiki.
A finely balanced, smooth harmonious light blend that enhances any good meal.
Hibiki is considered the model of Japanese whiskey production. Not only is it Japan's highest award-winning blended whiskey, but it also pays tribute to some of the most respected and recognized whiskeys in the world. Hibiki Japanese Harmony is the perfect introduction to the award-winning Hibiki portfolio from Suntory.
