The name HORYZON has several different origins. The primary reference is to the word oryza, a Latin name for rice, while the off-spelling of the word “horizon” is an ode to the country of Japan nicknamed “The Land of the Rising Sun.”
The blackbird with the gold crown that appears on the front of our bottles and on our logo is called a bobolink. This particular species is known as the “rice bird” and derives its Latin name oryzivorus from the root word oryza for “rice” and vorus meaning “consumes” or “eats”. The bobolink feeds on cultivated rice fields during the southern migration. Depending on what angle you view the bobolink, the gold crown on the neck sets an image of a sun rising over a dark horizon.
