The Story Behind Suntory

Following along from the huge Easter offerings at Sea Breeze Cellars in Dromana, Ray and the team are now offering the exclusive and much sought after Suntory Japanese Whisky range.

The history of Japanese Whisky is the history of Shinjiro Torii, the founder of Suntory. In 1923, Shinjiro Torii envisioned a whisky filled with the essence of Japanese nature and hand-crafted by artisans through a patient process of enhancing the work of nature, to create subtle, refined yet complex Japanese Whisky

Yamazaki is Suntory’s flagship single malt, multi-layered with fruit and Mizunara aroma. From Yamazaki was born the surprising, delicate yet profound experience of a Japanese single malt. Spiritual and deep, its signature multi- layered taste is highly praised by whisky connoisseurs over the world.

Hakushu is born straight from the untouched forests, mountains, and pure waters of the Southern Japanese Alps, it is no wonder that Hakushu is a “green and fresh” whisky, praised by the most curious whisky connoisseurs and lovers of gastronomy. Its crisp and vibrant feel and Mountain Smokiness, enlivens and liberates your senses, this is truly a unique experience

The legendary Hibiki represents true harmony. The enigma of perfection, the paragon of the art of whisky and the art of Japan’s artisans. Hibiki, meaning resonance in Japanese, speaks to the soul and emotions of the most discerning whisky lover. Numerous types of pure single malt whiskies ageing in various types of casks, including Mizunara, a very rare Japanese oak, all combine to create a full orchestra of flavours and aromas.
