Drink in Japanese style with Suntory whiskey boxes
We have heard about some of the most expensive luxury beverages that are not pricy because of the content but because of the bottles in which those are packed in. Bottles like The Isabella Original, that is highly expensive because of the 8500 diamonds and almost 300 rubies adorned on it, or the most expensive limited edition Johnnie Walker bottles; are all costly just because of the bottles. Yet another Japanese whiskey company has bottled three different blends of whiskey in three different boxes.
Suntory Holdings Limited which is one of the oldest companies in the distribution of alcoholic beverages in Japan, has boxed three whiskeys in different amazing wooden boxes. The company that was incepted in 1899 has housed three different bottles of alcohol ranging from 18 years of age for Yamazaki, and 21 years for Hibiki.
The boxes are made intricately of a luxurious wood from Japan called Paulownia wood, and each box is a work of art itself. Beautifully crafted, each box contains a jig that is a dispenser to hold the content. This jig is made of porcelain and festooned with beautiful engravings.
All the three dispensers are different in nature and are crafted according to the nature of the alcohol in it. The dispenser has two cups accordingly. The larger cup measures 45 ml and the smaller one is of 30 ml while the whole kit costs $325.88. Being a Japanese company, this jig is specifically meant to taste the drink in the Japanese style.
