Sake・Whiskey

Taste Whiskey with a Whiskey Sommelier

Full-scale production of Japanese whiskey began in the 1920s. Since that time, it has continued to evolve, and has performed favourably in international competition, with its popularity recently surpassing that of Scotch whiskey. The characteristics of Japanese whiskey are a complex blend relying on the discerning palate and sensibilites of the Japanese people themselves. In recent years, well-established sake artisans have also started to manufacture whiskey, and their end products’ subtleties of taste combined with their limited availability are becoming more attractive for whiskey lovers.
