1. For beginners to get started.

The concept of this site is to introduce Japanese whisky to people who have been interested in “BAR” and “Japanese whisky” but have been reluctant to approach it.

We hope that it will be an opportunity to go to a bar and learn more about Japanese whisky, not only for connoisseurs who are familiar with Japanese whisky, but also for beginners who want to learn about whisky and Japanese whisky from scratch, and that it will attract as many people as possible. We hope it will be a good opportunity for people to learn more about Japanese whisky and to go to bars.

2. Single Malt Yamazaki 18 Years Old

The highlight of this 12th YouTube video is a tasting of the coveted “Single Malt Yamazaki 18 Years old”.
Our staff actually went to the Yamazaki Distillery to show you how it is made.

Currently, more than 70 whisky distilleries have been established throughout Japan, and whisky production is underway on a daily basis.
