The history of whisky and spirits in Japan is a relatively recent phenomenon compared to traditional whisky-producing countries like Scotland and Ireland. However, Japan has rapidly gained international acclaim for its high-quality whiskies, showcasing a unique blend of tradition, innovation, and meticulous craftsmanship.
The Whisky and Spirits Festival in Yokohama is set to showcase not only Western-originating liquors such as whisky and gin, but also Japanese shochu and awamori, so it's bound to be an interesting event no matter what your favorite drink is. Attendees will be able to sample various drinks, make purchases, and interact directly with the producers.
This is a ticketed event, with admission priced at 5500 JPY. Tickets can be arranged online via the event website.
