One of the Japanese whisky giants. Kotobukiya, or as we know them today. Suntory. The company was founded by Shinjiro Torii in 1899, first as an importer of western liquor. As he progressed within the business he decided to build Japan's first distillery. This is where Masataka Taketsuru comes into the picture. He was hired as a distillery executive at Yamazaki. He later left the company to found his own.

One for the fact fans; "Kakubin" means square bottle. And this whisky is in.... a square bottle! This Suntory whisky is from the 1980s and it a good example of a lighter Japanese blended whisky.

40% ABV / 70cl
