Soft and mild in taste with a great scent of cherry blossoms: Suntory Kanade Sakura liqueur is a fantastic ingredient for pink drinks and tastes very natural and intense. Great for cocktails, as a sparkling aperitif or for long drinks. Cherry blossom season at last, whenever you want!
Kanade craft liqueurs are the result of over 100 years of Suntory craftsmanship and are produced at the Yamazaki distillery in Osaka. Only local cherry blossoms and cherry leaves are used for production. These are carefully picked and soaked in alcohol to extract the delicate aroma. The result is a delicate taste and a gentle fragrance that is unique to cherry blossoms. The beautiful pink color immediately brings back memories of the lush cherry blossoms in Japan.
The bottle design of the Kanade Sakura liqueur is also particularly elegant. The bottle itself features the famous Japanese shippo pattern. These overlapping circles have two meanings: On the one hand, the seven treasures of Buddhism, but also the "cloisonné", a goldsmith's technique for making metal jewelry, decorated with semi-precious stones. The label is made of high-quality washi paper.
Suntory Kanade Sakura liqueur can be enjoyed neat or on the rocks. It is particularly fantastic as an exciting ingredient for cocktails and long drinks and as a sparkling aperitif.

Suntory is one of the five largest spirits producers in the world and Japan's largest whisky producer with a market share of 70 percent. The company was founded in 1899 by Shinjiro Torii and is one of the oldest in the distribution of alcoholic beverages. Originally Suntory was a brewery and distillery, but the business areas have been steadily expanded. Today Suntory produces almost everything from coffee and soft drinks to fine wines, alcopops, beer, ice cream and flowers. The company is based in Osaka. In April 2014, Suntory bought out the spirits giant Beam Inc. for 13.6 billion dollars. Since then, the company has been represented in Germany as Beam Suntory. The Suntory Group includes brands such as Laphroaig, Marker's Mark, Canadian Club, Sauza Tequila and the German winery Robert Weil. However, Suntory is known beyond Japan for its excellent whiskies such as Yamazaki and Hibiki. The Yamazaki Single Malt was launched in 1984 and won the gold medal at the International Spirit Competition (ISC) in Great Britain for the first time in 2003. Since then it has been celebrated as the best-selling Japanese Single Malt. Suntory ISC has already received the coveted "Distiller of the Year" award several times in a row. Nowadays, the company can hardly be saved from prizes for its great whiskies. Suntory also became famous through the film "Lost in Translation" by Sofia Coppola with Bill Murray in the leading role. This is where the famous quote "For relaxing times make it Suntory time!" came from, which Bill Murray had to recite in a commercial for Hibiki 17. Many people claim that this was the beginning of the boom after Japanese whisky.
