The “Whisky Festival” has been held to date, specializing in Western liquors such as whisky and gin, but for the festival that will mark the start of 2024, the framework will be expanded to include “spirits from around the world”. The festival will be held for the first time on Sunday, February 11, 2024 at Pacifico Yokohama, the largest whisky festival ever held in Yokohama.
The largest-ever gathering of spirits from around the world will include not only whisky, gin, and other Western spirits, but also Japanese shochu, awamori, and other spirits.
In addition to tastings of whisky, gin, shochu, awamori, and other spirits, bottles and goods will be on sale at booths throughout the venue. In addition, direct interaction with producers is possible, which is one of the main attractions of this event.
This event is not limited to bartenders and liquor sales people, but is open to a wide range of general connoisseurs. We will keep you updated with the latest information on each menu page!

3. Event Outline

3-1. Events on the day

The official website has a “Seminars” section, which is currently under preparation.

Each event will feature a seminar, in which industry celebrities will serve as lecturers to explain their products and thoughts. The content of this year’s seminar has not yet been decided, but we will wait for further information on the official website.

3-2. Original festival-only bottles

For each festival, there is an entry ticket for a drawing for a “festival-limited original bottle,” and you may win a limited-edition bottle from a popular distillery in Japan. The official website will make an announcement as the date of the festival approaches.

4. Finally

This is the second festival to be held in Yokohama, and this time the venue is very large, and since it is a one-day event, we expect a large number of visitors.

Also, each year brings new pleasures, such as the opportunity to sample newborns and new makes from domestic distilleries that were not yet in production the previous time.
