Suntory Toki Whisky

Japanese blended Whisky from the Yamazaki, Hakushu and Chita distilleries

Suntory, founded by Shinjiro Torii produced its first whisky in 1929 in the Yamazaki distillery, often considered to be the birthplace of Japanese whisky. Another legendary figure in the Japanese whisky industry, Masataka Taketsuru, who had studied the distilling industry in Scotland, was also involved with Suntory before he started his own distilling company. Suntory now operates several distilleries in Japan and has become a global giant in the alcohol industry with its acquisition of Beam Inc in 2014.

Toki is blended with whisky from three of Suntory's distilleries, Yamazaki, Hakushu and Chita. Its key components include Hakashu single malt, aged in ex-Bourbon casks and Chita grain whisky. The Yamazaki distillery is also represented with two single malts, one aged in ex-Bourbon casks and another in sherry casks.

Toki means time in Japanese and the House of Suntory wish to communicate an image of tradition and modern, of old and new, of heritage and innovation. It is bottled at 43% abv.
