Suntory Kakubin Whisky
Dozens of years had passed since Suntory began creating Yamazaki Single Malt Whisky in the outskirts of Kyoto, based on the dream of Shinjiro Torii, the founder of Suntory, of crafting a Japanese whisky that rivals scotch. In 1937, Kakubin was created as a Japanese whisky tailored to the delicate Japanese palate.
Its position has remained unshakable in the 70 plus years of rapid change that have since passed. The square-cut, tortoise-shell bottle continues to bear witness to unwavering quality.
