Beam Suntory Inc.

As a world leader in premium spirits, Beam Suntory is inspiring human connections. With a vision of Growing for Good and an aspiration to be the world’s most admired and fastest-growing premium spirits company, and, we're driving growth through a commitment to craftsmanship and quality from seed to sip.

Our brands include the iconic Jim Beam® and Maker’s Mark® bourbons, Suntory whisky Kakubin and Courvoisier® cognac, as well as world renowned premium brands including Knob Creek®, Basil Hayden’s® and Legent™ bourbon; Yamazaki®, Hakushu®, Hibiki® and Toki® Japanese whisky; Teacher’s®, Laphroaig® and Bowmore® Scotch whisky; Canadian Club® whisky; Hornitos® and El Tesoro™ tequila; Haku® and EFFEN® vodka; and Sipsmith® and Roku gin. The pioneering spirit of founding families have driven our brands for centuries. In 1795, Jacob Beam, farmer and grain mill operator, produced his first barrel of whiskey. This whiskey would become Jim Beam, the world's #1 bourbon brand, which is currently overseen by seventh generation Beam family Master Distiller, Fred Noe. Suntory was established in 1899, when founder Shinjiro Torii started producing sweet wines. He then went above and beyond to produce the first Japanese whisky, and today the company is the leading whisky distiller in Japan, best known for its flagship single malt whiskies, Yamazaki and Hakushu, and the blended whisky, Hibiki.

Beam Suntory blends the Best of the East with the Best of the West, inspired by a "Yatte Minahare" spirit that encourages our team to dream big and pursue ambitious possibilities. This core value has helped guide Beam Suntory from its origins more than 200 years ago to become a global leader in premium spirits with a unique culture that differentiates us from every other company in our industry.

Beam Suntory's corporate social responsibility platform, Growing for Good, focuses on three primary areas: protecting water and the environment, supporting the communities where our people live and work, and promoting responsible consumption of our products.
