The history of Suntory is just as interesting as Vikings. Opening Torii Shoten Store in 1899, a young Shinjiro Torii was one step further into “creat[ing] original Japanese Spirits the whole world can enjoy, uniquely made from Japan’s nature and her people.” Fast forward to today, it achieved its vision in many ways including the birth of its craft gin called Roku Gin.
