In this virtual session, uncover the secrets of Japanese Whiskey and get tips to enjoy it to the best from the knowledge I gained at the world-famous Yamazaki Distillery and from whiskey bars in Kyoto. You will be amazed by how dedicated and complex Japanese whiskey culture is. Of course, you can just enjoy drinking whiskey but if you know its background, you will appreciate it all the more!

I will start with the basic knowledge of whiskey and its process, and then, focus on the unique point of Japanese whiskey. I’ve prepared several quizzes about whiskey, so you can check your whiskey knowledge! Start the drinking session by taking in the aroma of whiskey (nosing). Then, at “word” express your whiskey’s taste and smell and learn about each others' whiskey. I  will teach you how to enjoy Highball - whiskey with soda.

I invite all Japanese local whiskey lovers to join this session. Stay home & drink together!
