1. For beginners
We created this video with the concept of introducing whisky to people who have been interested in “bars” and “Japanese whisky” but have been reluctant to approach them.
The “Japanese Whisky Bar” was created with the concept of introducing Japanese whisky to people who have been interested in Japanese whisky but have been reluctant to approach it, not only to those who are familiar with Japanese whisky, but also to beginners who want to learn more about whisky and Japanese whisky from scratch. We hope it will be an opportunity for beginners who want to learn about Japanese whisky from scratch to go to a bar, or to learn more about Japanese whisky.
2. Video distribution #1 Akkeshi Blended Whisky Daikan
This time, we would like to introduce the latest Japanese whisky “Akkeshi Blended Whisky Daikan” in the form of a study session.
