The Suntory White Label whisky was the first single malt whisky made in Japan. It was launched in 1929 and got the nickname Shirofuda, which came from the white label on the bottle. After World War II, it was called White. Suntory was one of the first Asian companies to use Western celebrities to market their product. One of the most notable is Sammy Davis, Jr., who appeared in a series of memorable Suntory commercials in the early 1970s.
