Country of Origin: Japan
Nose: Nose-tinglingly sweet. More pear drops than fresh melon, with hints of crisp apple the only diversion from sugary intensity.
Palate: Fresh hit of melon on the tongue, although rather light. Sweet, lingering, and rather short.
Signature cocktails: Japanese slipper, The universe
Midori, developed by Suntory, was launched in the United States in 1978. Within the year of its release, Midori was named as the base to the cocktail ‘The Universe’, the winner of the US Bartender Guild Annual Competition.
