TOKYO -- Japanese drinks maker Suntory Holdings will spend about 3.2 billion yen ($30 million) to expand a gin distillery in Osaka, the company's latest effort to meet rising domestic and international demand for the spirit.

Bottling capacity will double at the distillery and come online in early 2022.
