Suntory, one of the most famous whisky producers in Japan and in the world started way back in 1923 and established in 1899. Before its establishment, the founder, Shinjiro Tori was just starting on his invention of the first whisky distillery in Yamazaki, Japan.
Since then the company has continued perfecting their brand enabling them to produce some of the best whisky drinks in the market today.
Umeshu is one of the most popular Japanese liquors, and it is made from the well-known Ume fruits. What makes Umeshu so different from most liquors is the fact that the Ume fruit must be green, not ripe, in order for the drink to be truly genuine.
