Shinjiro Torii, the father of Japanese Whisky founded Suntory in 1923 by opening the first distillery in Japan, called Yamazaki. Shinjiro, started out as a pharmaceutical wholesaler and later wine importer had found his passion for Whisky after discovering the wonders of the ageing process of spirits.The business and the passion for Whisky has been passed down to Shinjiro’s second son, Keizo Saji. All Keizo wanted was to enlarge and perfect the family business and all that happened at the end of the century, making Suntory the biggest producer of Whisky in Japan. 
 
Blended Whisky in Japan differs from the one in Scotland, as Japanese distilleries do not collaborate between each other and don’t allow different stock to be mixed. That is why Japanese distillers create diverse styles under one roof, using different techniques and yeast strains to produce different styles on their own and blend them together.
 
Hibiki 12 Year Old is a highly decorated Blended Japanese Whisky that includes Whisky from Yamazaki, Hakushu and also a small portion from Chita. It’s partly matured in plum liqueur casks, adding a special touch to an already magnificent Whisky which we can easily compare to any Scotch.

Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Japanese Whisky is connected both to Scotch and Bourbon. It’s a Scotch-style Spirit that’s matured in climates similar to Kentucky’s.
The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan are Nikka and Suntory, major rivals.
The Highball brought Japanese Whisky back to life. Aside from some attention from overseas, Japanese Whisky consumption domestically was very low during the better part of the early 2000s. It wasn’t until 2008, when Suntory launched the Highball campaign featuring their Kakubin Whisky that things kicked off.
The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan and major rivals are Nikka and Suntory.
In recent years, Japanese Whiskies have won several top prizes at the World Whisky Awards and have consistently scored higher than Scotch Whiskies in blind tastings. Talk about a student surpassing the master!
