Hibiki, the highest class of blended whisky, was launched to commemorate Suntory's 90th anniversary in 1989. It represents the corporate philosophy of Suntory - "in harmony with people and nature".
In the spring of 1989, when Keizo Saji turned 70, the production and blending techniques of malt whisky reached it`s peak. Having inherited the never-satisfied spirit from Shinjiro Torii the founder, Keizo kept pushing production to new limits.
The legendary Hibiki represents true harmony. The ideal of perfection, the paragon of 'The Art of Japanese Whisky' and its artisans. Hibiki means resonance in Japanese. It speaks to the soul and emotions of the most discerning whisky lover.
To produce this harmonious blend numerous pure single malt whiskies are aged in a variety of cask types, including Mizunara, a very rare Japanese oak. They all combine to create a full orchestra of flavors and aromas.
