Torys Highball

Working hard to increase demand and expand consumption, Suntory has further popularized the industry with another addition to the whisky-and-soda range, called Torys highball. This particular highball as with many others on the market has an alcohol volume of seven percent. All though this highball is claimed to be refreshing, and most likely be welcomed by some on a humid summers night, the malt grain is of lesser standard compared to its cousin the “Kakubin highball”. The recommended retail price justifies this but it’s great to see a wide range of products for a wide range of customers. And lets not forget to mention the reintroduction of the old advertising brand character Uncle Tory (situated top-left on can) that some of you are familiar with from your distillery visits.


  1. Uncle Tory... I look back on it with nostalgia.

  2. Wow Suntory really is pushing the highball big time. Have you tried this one? I do kind of like that they brought Uncle Tory back...some fun nostalgia.

  3. It certainly is fun nostalgia, especially when the trains here in Japan, well Kansai anyway, are caked with Uncle Tory posters.
