Kakubin Blended Whisky

Suntory Whisky Kakubin is the foundation of not just Suntory Whisky, but of Japanese Whisky itself. Kakubin is our signature blended whisky embraced for its uniquely Japanese flavors and aromas accentuated with key notes of whiskies from three distilleries – Yamazaki, Hakushu and Chita. Since its launch in 1937, this distinct blend has been revered as a classic and remains Japan’s best-selling* whisky.


Only available in select areas of Asia.
