Carlyn, our Spirits buyer's pick of the month is a round and sweet blend from Suntory.
Shinjiro Torii, a former pharmaceutical apprentice at a wholesaler which carried Western liquors, envisoned a whisky hand-crafted by artisans which was subtle, refined yet complex.
Having mastered the techniques of mixing and blending through his teenage apprenticeships, and despite unanimous protest, Torii invested his family fortune and pursued his dream, building Japan's first whisky distillery which began construction in 1918 in the outskirts of Kyoto.
Today, Suntory's third generation blender continues the pursuit of their family heritage, challenging what Japanese whisky can be.
New for your customers this month is Toki. Meaning 'time' in Japanese, it is representative of their legacy. A round and sweet blend, it has refreshing citrus character, and a spicy finish, which is amplified when served with ice.
