Hibiki Harmony 100th Anniversary 70 cl.Suntory
Suntory produces this blended whisky in Japan. Format of 70 cl.
Hibiki is the paragon of harmony - launched in 1989 to commemorate Suntory's philosophy of living in harmony with people and nature.
Hibiki is a noble blend of innumerous malt and grain whiskies from Suntory's globally acclaimed Yamazaki, Hakushu and Chita destilleries. These whiskies are meticulously blended to create a sense of "wa" -a oneness which unveils a full orchestra of flavors and aroma. Hibiki is embraced as an icon of Japanese luxury from the award winning House of Suntory Whisky.
The 100th year anniversary limited edition desing of Hibiki Japanese Harmony features a bridge with the traditional Japanese art of Setsugekka - snow, moon and flowers juxtaposed to showcase the passage of seasons. The bridge is a connection of each of the four seasons, connecting our past and future in hopes that the tradition and history will never be forgotten, always to be respected and lasted even as we look forward to our future.
Wrapped around the bottle of 24 facets - representing 24 hours in a day with 24 seasons in a year- the time that has allowed us to sense and appreciate the harmony created by and with people and nature.
The color of Hibiki Harmony 100th Anniversary is light amber. The nose is floral and fruity, with hints of rose, rosemary and wood. On the palate, the characteristic sweetness of candied orange and white chocolate appears. It finishes with a great touch of Mizunara, subtle and tender.

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.
