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.
This particular Suntory bottle is a special release in commemoration of Osaka 21st Century with a handmade ceramic bottle and of course, a Suntory whisky inside.
The octagon has eight pieces of jewel around it, and even a cover on the outside, along with a treasure bag and a collection of scroll treasure – gorgeously drawn. The design depicts the production of gem color from the ancient and valuable original at the Nabeshima of Suntory Museum of Art collections, with a “treasure octagonal dish” as the original. The bottle of ornate porcelain contains a long-term aged special whisky, more than 17 years old.
It comes with its original box, and is perfect for the collector.
