Well-balanced bottle design

The limited edition bottling

THE firm behind Japanese blended whisky Hibiki has unveiled a specially designed bottle of Hibiki Japanese Harmony to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the brand.

Inspired by a traditional kimono pattern, the limited edition bottle is embellished with the tabane-noshi – a traditional Japanese symbol of celebration that is said to have adorned precious gifts since ancient times.

Takahiro Itoga, senior global brand director at Beam Suntory, said the bottle design utilises “traditional Japanese symbols to create a design representing both celebration and shared happiness”.
