The name Antiquary derives its origin from the 1816 Gothic Novel by Sir Walter Scott. True to its historical origin, Antiquary is a Victorian whisky blend with Edinburgh roots, currently falling under Japanese ownership.
In the lap of the picturesque rolling hills of Chubu, Japan lies the patchwork city of Hakuto. The city is home to Suntory’s beautiful Hakushu Distillery, named after the eponymous township that makes up the modern day Hakuto. Established in 1973, Hakushu Distillery was later expanded to the nearby region of Hakushu East, with their distillation units clustered in this region.
