We are Proud Custodians of Legacies Measured in Centuries
In 1795, a farmer and grain mill operator named Jacob Beam produced the first barrel of whiskey that would become Jim Beam®, the world’s #1 selling bourbon. Suntory was founded in 1899 by Shinjiro Torii, who created the first whisky to suit Japanese palates.
With a vision of Growing for Good, our mission is to inspire human connections. We are driven by the entrepreneurial spirit that built Beam for more than two centuries and guides Beam Suntory as a world leader in premium spirits today. Inspired by our parent company Suntory’s “Yatte Minahare!” spirit of dreaming big, our objective is to be the world’s most admired, fastest-growing premium spirits company.
