Suntory purchases Beam Global

Well, now the Japanese own another big American distillery.....Four Roses and now Jim Beam/Makers Mark.  Beam shares in the market today shot up on the news.  Suntory is reportedly paying $13.6B.  Maybe this acquisition will help get more Japanese whisky to the U.S. market? 


  1. Don't forget Buffalo Trace is partially owned by a Japanese company... well, one of the their mashbills and a few brands to be exact.
