The House of Suntory, the Founding House of Japanese Whisky, is celebrating its 100th anniversary of whisky innovation: a major milestone not only for Suntory's history but for Japanese spirits culture. In honor of this centennial, the House releases a Suntory Anniversary Tribute as imagined by Academy Award-winning Director Sofia Coppola and starring Actor Keanu Reeves, as well as exclusive 100th anniversary editions of its world-renowned whiskies.
Twenty years after filming Lost in Translation, Sofia Coppola returned to Japan to create the Suntory Anniversary Tribute. Coppola brings her artistic genius and admiration for Suntory Whisky to life as the creative director of The Tribute that honors Suntory's illustrious past, present and future.
The Suntory Anniversary Tribute tells the remarkable story of the brand's heritage and whisky-making legacy over the last 100 years, depicting the meaning of "Suntory Time" through the eyes of its creator. The Suntory AnniversaryTribute, which features actor Keanu Reeves, a lover of Suntory Whisky and who previously appeared in a Suntory Reserve ad campaign in 1992, debuted yesterday during the Suntory Time 100th Anniversary Global Premiere event in New York City and can now be viewed on the House of Suntory website here.
