We recently had the chance to taste The Hakushu, a 12 year old single malt made by Suntory Whisky. In the process we became enamored with their use of a hand carved ice ball. To learn more we visited The Summit, a bar in New York's Alphabet City neighborhood to learn a little more about the process. In our video Gardner Dunn, Suntory's National Brand Ambassador, gave us the run down on the traditional production, purpose and use of the ice ball in Japanese whisky culture.
