The House of Suntory

Quintessentially Japanese

Founded in 1899, Shinjiro Torii built the House of Suntory to craft quintessentially Japanese spirits that would suit the delicate palate of his people. With the founding of Japan’s first malt whisky distillery at Yamazaki, Suntory’s place in Japanese history was cemented.

The Spirit of Craftsmanship

Though Suntory is best known for Japanese whisky, Shinjiro also applied his challenger’s spirit and “Monozukuri” craftsmanship to producing other spirits.

Today the House of Suntory encompasses a range of craft spirits including whisky, gin and vodka, with a rich cultural experience and pilgrimage to Japan in every bottle, ready to be discovered by the world.
