The first whisky was made in Ireland and Scotland in the 15th century, and the art of distillation has since spread to all the corners of the world. Beam Suntory is the third largest distiller in the world, and owns a great deal of brands in all the major whisky regions. Suntory World Whisky Ao pays tribute to the liquid’s celebrated heritage. It is an unprecedented blend of whiskies from Suntory’s most renowned distilleries in Ireland, Scotland, the United States, Canada and Japan: Cooley, Ardmore, Glen Garioch, Jim Beam, Alberta, Yamazaki and Hakushu. Each region, climate and style adds its own unique personality to the blend. The whisky has exceptionally rich aromas and flavours: fruity, sweet, smoky, and spicy notes intertwine. This 0.35L bottle of Suntory World Whisky Ao was launched in April 2019 and released again for Global Travel Retail in October 2020.
