Ao Whisky is One of a Kind

Ao Whisky bottle and sniffing glass Finally had an opportunity to try Ao Whisky. Blended by Suntory, it features five of the world’s top whisky producing regions: the United States, Scotland, Canada, Ireland, and of course, Japan. It is a light, easy to drink blend but be careful because it clocks in at 43% ABV.

The bottle is interesting because it has five points to represent the global regions that were selected to produce this blend. Likewise, the name ‘Ao’ means “blue” in English, referring to the ocean that connects us all.

Ao Whisky is currently only available in Japan. However, this global blend is a first of seemingly many more to come. Indeed, Forbes says it’s “..set to change the industry.” Hmm…
