What you'll do

【Good for remote friends gathering, Gift to whiskey lovers, Team building, Virtual retreat etc】


This is virtual drinking session of Japanese whiskey.
I share a secret of Japanese Whiskey and tips to enjoy it which I learned from inside of Yamazaki Distillery and whiskey bars in Kyoto.
You’ll be surprised how dedicated Japanese whiskey is and its complicated process.

Of course you can just enjoy drinking whiskey.
But, if you know its background, your whiskey life will be more meaningful.
Whiskey is one of the most mysterious alcohol.

I’ll explain basic knowledge of whiskey and its process.
Then, focus on unique point of Japanese whiskey.
I’ve prepare several quizzes about whiskey, so you can proof and show how much you love whiskey.

In drinking session, we can begin with noseing in proper way.
Then, “Word” is important.
Brenders also use their own “word” to express whiskey’s taste and smell.
Let’s exchange everybody’s whiskey by your “word”.
If you have Japanese whiskey, it’s highly welcomed, but also your country’s whiskey is very welcomed.
I’d like to know how is your whiskey and how you enjoy it.
As our culture, I’ll teach how to enjoy “Highball”(whiskey with soda)

Now people couldn't go drinking easily because of self-isolation.
In Japan, we started "Online Drinking Party" and it's actually very cool.
And this is also how we enjoy and worship whiskey.

Sometimes, Japanese local whiskey lover will join this session.

"Stay Home & Drink Together"

Learned a lot about Japanese whiskey history. Kenji was entertaining and fun to talk to. It's too bad the experience couldn't have been in person due to COVID!

Lots of interesting information, the host is very enthusiastic about the subject, it's a fun group activity. I only wish it was possible to take this kind of tour in person

Kenji did an amazing job with telling us about the history of Japanese whisky and the process of making them. We did the tour via zoom and hope that we can one day do the tour in person.

My partner and I did this activity for Valentine’s Day (he enjoys whiskey but I, less so) and it was enjoyable evening with Kenji! We had the opportunity to ask lots of questions and we learned some cool facts! I still enjoyed learning about the history of whisky in Japan!

Surprised my boyfriend with this for Valentine's day and we loved it! Kenji was super friendly and well-informed. He structured the experience very well, balancing the time with interesting historical and educational content as well as asking everyone about their experiences, preferences, etc. He made the most of the time and gave us many recommendations at the end. I highly recommend doing this--it's a great deal, we learned a lot, and it was so much fun! Thank you Kenji!!
