About the Brand

This is the principle of Suntory founder Shinjiro Torii, who never lost faith in himself or his products whatever difficulties he faced, and who energetically continued to exercise his daring talents no matter how many times he was knocked back.

At a time when Western culture had not yet pervaded commonly in Japan, his efforts to popularize Western liquor were met with doubts and opposition from all around.  In response to the doubters, he said:

“You would never know if your work might end in either triumph or mediocrity unless you try it”

More than a century later, the spirit of adventure and challenge that drove Shinjiro still lives on in Suntory’s corporate DNA.

Never content to settle for the status quo, Suntory continues to try new paths and enter new fields.
Our corporate culture rejects the idea of declining challenges by worrying about the outcome.
We never justify the sin of no challenge. This is the attitude that has built a future for Suntory and Japanese whisky.  Read More
