Seiichi, Chief Blender Emeritus, Suntory Spirits Ltd., On The Power Of Routine And Its Role In Whisky-Blending

Mr. Seiichi, Chief blender emeritus of Suntory Spirits Ltd., has eaten the same food at breakfast and lunch every day for 20 years.

Because he wants to keep conditions as constant as possible. The sense of taste is more sensitive in the morning, so he does testing from 10 o’clock to around noon.

Monday through Friday, and his routine there hasn’t changed at all. The basics of a blender’s work are the daily tastings.

There are moments when the very same whisky can turn into something completely different.

This only happens when you keep on patiently repeating the same work over and over.

There are no perfect scores in a blender’s work, and a blender is always trying to improve quality, never satisfied.
