It appears Nikka, at their Yoichi distillery in Hokkaido, will make the most of the bearable July weather in the northernmost island and hold an out door event. To show their loyalty and appreciation to their customers, the grounds of the Yoichi distillery will be open for a family orientated festival named “Customer Gratitude Day”. The distillery seems to be going all out for the day of festivities, which include a brass band, stalls, and prize wining games (mass bingo), an enticement for the whole family. There will be various types of food, and lets not forget the main ingredient, tasting sessions on offer. Obviously Hokkaido is not a place that allows you to jump on the local train and be there quicker than you can say “another Yoichi please”, well for people in Kansai anyway, but for the adventourous, this event is free, so you could possibly tie it up with a trip. For a more detailed description of the day's events, take a look here.
Date: July 3 (Sunday)
Where: Yoichi Distillery, Hokkaido
Address: Hokkaido Yoichigun Yoichimachi Kurokawacho 7-6 Japan
