History for Midori Shots Shooters
Suntory’s Midori is a muskmelon-flavored liqueur with a pleasant, vivid green tint.
Japan, the United States, Mexico, and France are among the countries that produce it. It was first released in 1964 as “Hermes Melon Liqueur,” but in 1978, it was renamed “Midori.”
Until 1987, it was only made in Japan. Midori typically contains 20–21% alcohol by volume. Its name is derived from the Japanese word “green.” The French variant of Midori is sweeter than the Japanese original.
