Midori melon liqueur is a fruity-aromatic, melon-flavored liqueur produced by Japanese beverage maker Suntory. It is manufactured in Japan, the United States, Mexico and France. It was made exclusively in Japan until 1987.
His predecessor, a liqueur called Hermes was at first only moderately successful, but this changes, when Suntory in 1978 adapted the taste in taste preferences in the United States.
So Midori was launched by Suntory at Studio 54in New York City in 1978 during a party held by the cast, crew, and producers of Saturdy Night Fever.
Midori is one of the fruit flavoring liqueurs and is typically 20 % alcohol by volume. Its name is the Japanese word for “green”. The Midori formulated in France is sweeter than the original Japanese version. The drink is sold in more than 50 countries.
In 2013, following consumer research, Suntory reduced the sugar content and began producing Midori with a redesigned label and frosted glass bottle.
