    Beam Suntory rebrands to Suntory Global Spirits

    Spirits major Beam Suntory has announced a rebranding to become Suntory Global Spirits, which it said would reflect its evolution into a truly global leader across categories in spirits and ready-to-drink cocktails.

    The new name is introduced as the company marks 10 years of the acquisition of Beam Inc. by Suntory Holdings in 2014. The company has grown significantly over this time period, from a $2.5 billion-dollar company to a $5.5 billion-dollar global spirits powerhouse today.

    The rebrand includes the launch of a new website and visual identity that celebrate Suntory Global Spirits’ distinctive, unmatched focus on quality, craftsmanship and sustainability – defining brand attributes connected to and complemented by those of its parent company, Suntory Holdings.

    “Suntory Global Spirits demonstrates our global leadership and premium position in the market, while enabling us to build upon the strong and positive brand recognition that Suntory has worldwide,” said Greg Hughes, president and chief executive of Suntory Global Spirits.

    “The dedication that Suntory CEO Tak Niinami and Suntory Holdings have shown to advancing our culture and business growth – while also preserving the legacy of craftsmanship and interplay of traditions exemplified in brands from Jim Beam to Laphroaig and Maker’s Mark to Yamazaki – is extraordinary. Becoming Suntory Global Spirits is the natural next step in our evolution.”

    Tak Niinami, president and chief executive of Suntory Holdings and executive chairman of the board of directors at Suntory Global Spirits, added: “Now is the right moment to deepen our shared passion for the innovation and artistry that deliver incredible experiences through our products and fully unlock our unified advantage across our leading spirits portfolio.

    “Since the acquisition of Beam Inc. in 2014, the company has gone through an incredible transformation to become an even stronger organization, led by our shared values of Yatte Minahare, Growing for Good and Giving Back to Society. We’re grateful to the entire global team under Greg’s leadership as we continue to inspire the brilliance of life in harmony with nature and grow the trust and love that people have for Suntory around the world.”

    The company’s new brand platform showcases the art of crafting the highest quality products with great attention to and respect for the water and natural ingredients that are vital across its iconic spirits portfolio. It also pays homage to the bold steps that Suntory and Beam Suntory, now Suntory Global Spirits, have taken over the last decade in pursuit of Suntory Global Spirits’ ambition to become the world’s most admired premium spirits company.

    The rebrand is expected to help the company drive value as one global team and focus on key priorities including American whiskey, Japanese spirits, Scotch, tequila and ready-to-drink, while providing flexibility for growth in the future.
