Famous for the Kakubin Highball, a drink that has taken Japan by storm, Kakubin blended whisky (40% ABV) has been produced since 1937 and still comes in its original decanter style bottle.

Kakubin means “square bottle” and with the summer months almost upon us, the Kakubin Highball is set to become the drink of choice. It’s light and refreshing, an alternative to beer and wine and makes for easy drinking whether you’re a whisky fan or not.

Suntory Whisky Kakubin is available in bars and liquor stores around Australia at a RRP of $48.

How to Make the Perfect Suntory Kakubin HighBall

The Kakubin Highball is traditionally served in a special mug although a beer would do.

1. Squeeze a wedge of lemon in a glass packed with ice.
2. Add 30 ml of Kakubin
3. Top with 120 ml of cold soda water.
4. Stir with a long spoon and enjoy.

Kampai!
