Suntory Whisky

The history of Suntory whisky goes back to 1923, the year when Suntory’s founder, Shinjiro Torii, started building the first whisky distillery in Japan in Yamazaki, on the outskirts of Kyoto. In the over 80 years since the birth of our first distillery in Yamazaki, Suntory’s craftsmanship has matured to yield high-quality premium whiskies recognized worldwide and acclaimed highly in overseas markets. We continue to solidify our position as the leading company in Japan, while continuing to polish Japanese whisky to reach a higher height.
