Suntory is the oldest whisky making company in Japan. Its origins stretch back to a small shop, started in 1899 by Torii Shinjiro, which specialized in selling imported wines. Today, it is the country’s largest and most recognizable producer of quality whisky. From time to time, the company releases specialty bottles – eminently collectible favorites of whisky fans.
This bottle is a Suntory Royal 2009 zodiac bottle, released to celebrate the Year of the Cow. Presented in a red ceramic bottle taking the shape of a cow, it is a 15 year old limited release.
