Move over Wild Turkey. Take a seat Jack Daniel’s. There’s a new whiskey in town (actually, two) and the name(s) might shock you.

Whisky Magazine‘s famous World Whiskey Awards have named two Japanese whiskeys as the globe’s best this year. Hokkaido’s Nikka Yoichi 20 years old took home the title in the single malt category, while Suntory Hibiki captured the blended category.

Interestingly enough, Suntory is the brand that Bill Murray‘s character promotes – and unintentionally mocks – in the award-winning movie Lost in Translation with the memorable phrase, “For relaxing times, make it Suntory time.”
