Suntory

In 1899, a man named Shinjiro Torii opened a imported wine shop in Osaka. Business is good, the company changed its name to Kotobukiya, and, in 1924, the first whiskey distillery is started. It is established for Kotobukiya by a Masataka Taketsuru (who founded later, in 1934, Nikka). The first Japanese single malt whisky called Suntory Shirofuda (Suntory white label) was launched in 1929. A second whiskey comes thereafter, the Kakubin whiskey, that is still available today. Production must be stopped during the Second World War and resume afterwards. In 1963, the company Kotobukiya changed its name to Suntory, and started in the same year, to produce beer in the new brewery of Musashino. The second distillery opens in Hakushu in 1973. In 1989, Suntory launched the Hibiki blended whiskey.
