Hibiki Japanese Harmony 2021 special edition revealed

The House of Suntory has unveiled a limited-edition bottle for its Hibiki Japanese Harmony whisky.

The specially designed bottle, adorned with painted flowers and flowing ribbons of water, will be available from Master of Malt and The Whisky Exchange.

The Hibiki bottle's 24-faceted design is meant to symbolise the 24 hours in a day, and the 24 seasons of the year in the traditional Japanese lunar calendar. The 2021 special edition pays homage to the Ryisui-Hyakka (One Hundred Flowers and Flowing Water) and celebrates different seasonal flowers which help characterise the Japanese seasons.

 Jon Potter, managing director of the House of Suntory, said: "The iconic Hibiki bottle has always been a representation of Japanese art and design, as represented by the many limited-edition series over the past 10 years. This specially designed bottle is not only the continuation of this artistic expression; it honours Hibiki and Suntory's ethos to live in harmony with nature. In 2021, this philosophy may echo with the world more than ever."

The Hibiki brand was introduced in 1989, with Hibiki Japanese Harmony - a blend of malt and grain whiskies from House of Suntory's Yamazaki, Hakushu and Chita distilleries - released in 2015. The 2021 Limited Edition (43% ABV) has a suggested retail price of £134 per 750ml.
