The “Chichibu Whisky Festival” is held every year in Chichibu, Saitama Prefecture, by a group of volunteers who love whisky and want to spread the culture and enjoyment of whisky around the world.

Our staff will be very happy if this festival can connect as many people as possible who live in the same era and enjoy the same alcoholic beverages of the same era.

Please enjoy whisky with as many people as possible and feel the thoughts of the brewers that are packed inside.
