Remark :

Suntory :

Suntory is the largest still in the world.
The label on Hibiki bottles are made of handmade paper, after original old Japanese tradition.

From the Whisky pilot by Uniqum Systems :
The logotype for Suntory is the hibiki mark, symbolising Suntorys efforts to contribute to harmony and happiness among people everywhere. Today the Suntory Ltd is multinational company with a wide variety of companies under its wings. They produce beer, wine, whisky as well as medicines, papers and run restaurants, produce films and music just to mention a few of the branches of Suntory.
But it all started back in 1899 when Shinjiro Torii started to develop a wine. After eight years he had produced Akadama, a sweet red wine. With that he launched the first Japanese Western-style alcoholic beverage industry. In 1923 he established the first whisky distillery in Japan, the Yamazaki distillery. He was very talented in blending and produced a whisky called Suntory Shirofuda, now known as Suntory White in 1929. In 1937 he created another blend, the Kakubin which was of even higher quality than the Shirofuda. In 1940 he introduced another new blend called Old. In 1973 Suntory Ltd built a second distillery in the Hakushu valley of the Japanese alps. The distillery was named Hakushu Distillery. A third distillery, Hakushu Higashi was built somewhat east of the Hakushu but sharing the same water.
In 1989 Suntory launched Hibiki and Crest 12 Years Old which added another two blended whiskies to the range.
They also produce the Yamazaki pure malt, as well as the Royal, Reserve, Old, Kakubin and Shirokaku blends.
Apart from the whisky they produce Suntory also imports a large number of spirits to Japan. Beefeater, Courvoisier, Jack Daniels, Campari and Drambuie are just some amon the more than 140 brands that are marketed by Suntory.
