Suntory EXPO '70
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.
This Suntory release is to commemorate the 1970's EXPO in Suita in Osaka, Japan. This World fair theme was "Progress and Harmony for Mankind".

Black & White EXPO '70
Black & White was first produced by the London-based whisky blender founded by James Buchanan. Originally known as House of Commons (it was the official whisky there) its nickname, referring to the black and white labelling, was eventually adopted as the official brand instead. The brand's motif featuring a black Scottish Terrier and a white West Highland Terrier was conceived by Buchanan himself during the 1890s. After a series of mergers and acquisitions involving Dewar's (1915), Distillers Company and Guinness, the brand is now owned by Diageo.
