In 1978, Midori was launched by Suntory in the US at the legendary studio 54. And what better way to say "I am here!" than with a monster party at Studio 54 (the world's most famous nightclub) where many legends in fashion, film, music and art were always in attendance.
The year it was released, MIDORI was the main ingredient highlighted in "The Universe", a cocktail that won the first prize in the US Bartender Guild Annual Competition. Since then, MIDORI has gained an outstanding reputation among
leading bartenders and cocktail designers worldwide for its excellent quality and superb versatility.
