Midori is a sweet honeydew melon-flavoured liqueur, highly recognizable for its vibrant green colour. Originally and exclusively produced in Japan, it was introduced in 1978 in the United States by Suntory and has since been distributed in over 50 countries today. Making the famous green liqueur is a global affair, from the base spirit process in Japan to France and Mexico for the final bottling. Starting with a neutral grain spirit base, Midori is made from premium muskmelons, the Yubari King Melon and Musk Melon, both combining to produce a juicy sweetness the liqueur is known for.
The liqueur’s high versatility and sweet melon taste has made it an essential bar ingredient, and has since found its place in the cocktail scene mixed in notable cocktails like Melonball. Due to its sweetness, the muskmelon-flavored liqueur can be enjoyed with juices, spirits and as a base for fruity and fresh cocktails. Find Midori in Singapore’s duty-free shopping today.
