Hibiki 17 Egret White Heron Shirasagi: 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. Of all its products, the Hibiki remains the most popular, having been chosen as the best whisky in the world on several occasions. For anyone who has tried this flagship product from Suntory, this should come as no surprise. Here, we present the Hibiki 17 years old Egret White Heron Shirasagi Limited edition.
This 2014 special edition whisky is presented in a hand painted bottle that illustrates an Egret, a type of heron native to Japan. This bird is the epitome of elegance, a good fit for Hibiki. Only 2000 hand painted bottles were made.
