House of Suntory
The “soul-place” in Japanese culture is a dwelling that becomes the core source of spiritual inspiration and a unique guiding force.
Water, with its purity, has always been the representative elemental force for Suntory soulplaces. Yamazaki and Hakushu’s water resources are both designated as Japan’s “most precious” for their quality and pure essence. The region of Yamazaki was formerly referred to as “Minaseno”, where one of the purest waters of Japan originates. The water at Hakushu offers a rare softness and purity, only made possible by filtration of rain and snow through thousand-year-old granite rocks.
“Kanzen”or complete, Hibiki is a harmonious blend of innumerous malt and grain whiskies which are meticulosly blended to create a full orchestra of flavors and aromas. Seductive, blossoming and enigmatic, Hibiki celebrates an unrivaled art of blending, fine craftsmanship and a sense of luxury from the House of Suntory.
From its launch, Hibiki has been embraced as the paragon of The Art of Japanese Whisky, the very product of Japanese nature and her people. Hibiki is not only Japan’s most highly awarded blended whisky, but among the most prestigious and honoured whiskies in the world.
