The creation and perfection of Haku is based on more than 100 years of experience and expertise.
The name Haku celebrates the origin and the craft of this Premium Japanese Vodka. The kanji (Japanese character) for Haku means “white”. But the subtlety of the Japanese language often gives kanji several readings. Read as “shiro” it would merely means white.
But read as “haku”, it is intentionally rooted and elevated. Rooted as referring to “Hakumai” (白米) – Japanese white rice- the origin of the liquid.
Elevated as evoking “Junpaku” (純白) – “untainted” and brilliant – a tribute to the craft of mastering a clear, clean and luminous vodka, carefully filtrated through bamboo charcoal for an unparalleled soft, round and subtly sweet taste.

Founded in 1899, the House of Suntory was built on one man’s dream. Shinjiro Torii, who at the age of 20 wanted to “create an original Japanese spirits blessed with the riches of Japanese nature and ‘monozukuri’ craftsmanship : a relentless pursuit for perfection, meticulous attention to detail and commitment to quality.”
Shinjiro overcame numerous hardships to make his dream a reality, creating wine, whisky and brandy, and launching Hermes Vodka – the first Suntory Vodka – in 1956. Shinjiro and his family continuously pushed his vision with the same challenging spirit, applying the philosophy of “yatte minahare” (go for it), to challenge market conventions and introduce innovative quality spirits for the world.
