Created by bartenders for bartenders, The Blend is an innovative & inspiring bartender engagement program, brought to you by Beam Suntory. We like to think of ourselves as a bartending community – where emerging, professional and master bartenders join together. 

Our passion is our purpose – share yours with us!

The Blends of The World

The Blend brings you the world’s best in the industry to inspire you to be creative in your craft.

The Bowmore Series

In the world’s largest whisky market, scores of Indians have discovered the joys of Scottish whisky. But if there is a regional style that they are partial to – it must be the peaty whiskies from Islay!

The Toki Series

The newest addition to Suntory’s whisky portfolio – Toki – makes its debut in India and for many who like their Japanese malts and blends, Bill Murray’s iconic quote holds good for the drams in their glass – ‘For relaxing times, make it Suntory time’!

The Roku Gin Series

There is no doubting the fact that Gin is IN! And HOW! In a country that has had a long drawn love affair with its drams of whisk(e)y, Gin has been a disruptor. It is back on everyone’s list of favourites and is in everyone’s glass. Kanpai!


Established in Australia 33 years ago, The Blend (formally known as Club Suntory) is a trade engagement program designed to engage and inspire the bartender community around the world.


The Blend supports and celebrates the bartender at every stage of their career; uniting and nurturing emerging, professional & master bartenders.


We are a blend of passionate storytellers, iconic brands, inspiring talent & industry innovation.
