The history of Japanese whisky, begins with Shinjiro Torii, who founded the Suntory whisky distillery in 1923. Shinjiro Torii dreamed of creating a subtle and refined, yet complex whisky that would suit the delicate palate of the Japanese and enhance their dining experience. Inspired by traditional Scottish whisky, Torii envisioned a Japanese approach by choosing a terrain and climate completely different from those of Scotland. He chose the region of Yamazaki, Kyoto as the birthplace of Japanese whisky.
