Introducing Suntory AO
With supplies of Suntory’s prolific line of Japanese Whisky becoming increasingly constrained, many people have been wondering how the company could continue its legacy of innovation. It was only a matter of time before Suntory shared a vision that had likely been years in the making. In January they lifted the veil and fans around the world were introduced to the next chapter in Suntory Whisky.
Uniting The Whisky World
Suntory’s new blend once again manages to whip up excitement by offering a release that pushes the boundaries of the whisky industry even further. Named “Ao”, the Japanese word for “blue”, this whisky was named with the seven seas in mind. The seas link the world’s five largest whisky regions and it was from Suntory distilleries in these nations that liquid was chosen for blending to form this revolutionary new expression. For the first time, fans can experience the unity of Irish, Scotch, American, Canadian and Japanese whiskies from Suntory’s world renowned distilleries.
Expertise You Can Taste
Over the past few years, the Japanese pursuit of perfection has transformed the global perception of blended whisky. The craftsmanship and inspiration of Suntory blenders drove the category to new heights, giving enthusiasts a taste of a truly harmonious whisky. By giving these artisans an expanded palette of ingredients, Suntory “Ao” allows these blending geniuses to develop completely new flavors while still maintaining the company’s reputation for producing blended whisky that is impeccably well balanced.
New & Bold Personality
Merging the unique flavor characteristics of five regions creates whisky with a personality all its own. The whiskies are reportedly hand-selected by Suntory chief blender Shinji Fuwa to make the best use of the individual flavor profiles offered by each. The combination creates a complex whisky that delivers new perspectives, which vary depending on the temperature of the liquid, and the manner in which it is enjoyed. Suntory “Ao” offers whisky enthusiasts a unique experience that utilises the distinguishing features, and power of, Suntory’s acclaimed distilleries combined.
