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…
The Facebook link provided below takes you to an official announcement in Japanese from Bar Forest Chair, located in Okinawa City. We will team up with them to introduce Luc Belaire sparkling wine to their fan base.
We are excited about this opportunity to share a great lineup of products with a great group of friends. The official announcement in English is available on our Facebook page or Instagram account. Hope to see you there!
