Whisky Festival 2012 in Tokyo

One of the two main whisky events in Tokyo is set to take place in December, 2012. The seventh Whisky Festival (organized by the Scotch Whisky Research Center) will be held at the Tobu Hotel Levant Tokyo on Dec 2, from 11:00am to 6:00pm. General entry is 3,500 yen or 4,500 yen on the day. Applications can be obtained here. The gathering will have most of the major makers in both Scotch and Japanese whiskies. On the domestic front the familiar players will be there: Suntory, Nikka, Kirin, Venture Whisky (Ichiro's Malt), and Hombo Shuzo (Mars Distillery). Just like the Whisky Festival Osaka 2012 (part one, two, three), there will be a decent smorgasbord of free tasting, seminars, as well as the chance to rub shoulders with those in the know.

  1. I like the last sentence, Clint - nicely put! This sounds like a fun event to be.
