Suntory Midori Green Melon Japanese Flavored Liqueur is the original melon liqueur enhanced by premium Japanese muskmelons that can be experienced with juices, spirits, and other drinks - a fruity sensation of fresh melons.
The word "Midori" means "Green" in Japanese. The emerald green found in Japanese nature is where Midori was born. It's quality, and delicious taste comes from the blending of the juices of premium muskmelons — which are extremely rare in Japan. Grown in only one region of Japan, they are incredibly hard to find. In addition to their rarity, both muskmelons are cultivated in fertile soils to create the tastiest melons. By extracting the essence from two different Japanese melons using two different production methods, a premium melon flavor is born.
Shinjiro Torii, the founder of Suntory, had a lifetime dream to create a colorful Western liqueur. Since its release, Midori Melon Liqueur continues to gain an outstanding reputation worldwide for its high quality and versatility.
Midori is the brand name for a specific liqueur that is distinct in two aspects: color and flavor. The color is a beautiful light green that has often used almost any cocktail that calls for a melon liqueur. Its green color makes it a tempting drink for mixing up party shots as well. If a shooter includes Midori, it's likely to be one that tastes good, and sometimes they can be just a little too good. Serve over ice for a refreshing after-dinner treat. Enjoy!
