About Suntory

A century ago, the House of Suntory was founded with a singular vision: to make quintessentially Japanese spirits that would suit the discerning palate of the Japanese people.

In 1923, the first Japanese whisky distillery was founded by Shinjiro Torii near Kyoto, a region known for its clear and beautiful waters. Inspired by traditional Scotch whisky, Torii envisioned a Japanese approach by choosing a completely different terrain and climate than Scotland to create a unique type of whisky. The Yamazaki distillery soon became known as the birthplace of Japanese whisky, and several more distilleries have since opened with their own innovative approach to finely crafted spirits.

The Hakushu distillery was founded half a century after Yamazaki. Keizo Saji inherited his father's vision in his quest for innovation and built this second Suntory malt whisky distillery in 1973. The exceptionally soft water of Hakushu Mountain originates as clear rainwater and melted snow, which passes through Mt. Kaikomagatake from the Southern Japanese Alps and joins the Ojiro and Jingu rivers at the foot of the mountain. With four distinctive seasons, the clear air and cool, moist climate of the vast Hakushu forests allow the distillery, one of the few located at an altitude of 700 meters or more, to produce high quality whiskey through a slow, unhurried process. 

Later, the Chita distillery in Osaka, where Roku Gin is produced, and the Osumi distillery complete the House's extensive infrastructure. The House's craftsmen are committed to selecting the finest ingredients and developing complex and innovative techniques to create spirits of unparalleled quality and unique Japanese character.  

The Japanese feel at one with nature; their ultimate inspiration and guiding force. They have a special reverence for nature, and believe that the nameless spirits known as "eight million gods" reside within every pebble, rain and seed. Japanese nature is blessed with many expressions, lush greenery, steep mountains and beautiful waters. Each is compounded by the richness of the seasons. In each Suntory Whisky lives a uniquely Japanese sensibility and respect for nature.
