Brewed for true connoisseurs, The Premium Malt’s is quite simply, perfection in a glass. Crafting its award-winning formula is like the workings of an artist, an expert craftsman who perfects every movement to complete his life’s greatest masterpiece. Such is the Takumi spirit behind the making of The Premium Malt’s. Takumi is a title accorded to Japan’s most honorouble craftsmen who possess extraordinary skill, uncompromising passion and a deep respect for tradition. Such highly regarded individuals include Suntory’s well-respected brew masters.
Since its launch in 2003, Suntory the Premium Malt’s has earned praise and recognition by a prestigious and sophisticated clientele in Japan and all over the world. Because of its craft quality and flavour, it is consistently ranked as the no. 1 premium beer in Japan, and is available at upmarket restaurants including many Michelin-star establishments.
Suntory the Premium Malt’s is also the first and only Japanese beer to be awarded the Grand Gold medal in the renowned Monde Selection for three consecutive years (2005, 2006 and 2007). The Monde Selection is an international competition which discovers and honours excellent products from all around the world. Nominated products in the beer category are screened for quality and taste by an institute accredited by the Belgian Ministry of Public Health and are put through extensive evaluations by a panel of industry experts.
