Proof66 Notes

Suntory's Hibiki Japanese Harmony whisky is meant to honor the "harmony that exists between Japanese nature and people." The whisky itself is a blend of malt and grain whiskies (similar in style to blended scotch) from all three of Suntory's distilleries. The blend includes the 17yr and 21yr Hibiki whisky as well as among others. They recommend serving with a "hand-carved iceball" (though we suppose a large ice cube will do in a pinch).

Suntory Distilling was founded in 1899 by Shinjiro Torii beginning with the sale of grape wine. and today carry the tradition of "Yatte Minahare," which they translate as "go for it!" In 2003 they announced a philosophy of corporate citizenship. They operates two distilleries. The first was Yamazaki distillery was constructed in 1924 and produced its first "genuine" whisky in 1929. It today produces the single malt whiskies for Suntory in the style of single malt scotches. Hakushu was built in 1973 "at the foot of Mt Kaikomagatake." It gives its name to the larger Suntory Company, which owns massive operations and several lines of whisky, including the ownership of US bourbon and whiskey maker Beam.
