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"

Wonderful experience with Kenji. Very knowledgeable about the subject matter and is very engaging with his guests. Learned a lot about the history of Japanese whisky and also some smaller tid bits of fun facts. Kenji will answer questions when asked, so do not feel shy. Enjoyed the whisky he recommended and will try the others as well. All in all a great experience to enjoy in large groups but also great with a smaller group of friends. Please give it a try!

We are new to whiskey but we learnt so much about Japanese whiskey with this experience! Kenji-san is an expert and gave us insight into the whiskeys that we were drinking. He is friendly and entertaining! Our experience was very interactive and we also enjoyed chatting with other participants. We had a lot of fun :) It makes us really miss Japan and we will have to go back and try the whiskey there! We would definitely recommend this experience to anyone who is new to whiskey or enjoys whiskey :)

the host is friendly and professional. I learned a lot on knowledge of Japanese whisky. Kenji even prepared slides/photos for some key points, and he customized the talks based on the audience as well. definitely recommend this if you are interested in Japanese whisky and alcohol culture in general.

I have been experimenting with ways to make corporate events more interactive, and a whiskey tasting seemed like the perfect idea. We booked a private event. Kenji was a fantastic host, he let my nerdy friends interrupt him and say things, and he incorporated what they thought was interesting into the rest of his guided tour. I think that made it so unique and fun.

If you're considering a whisky tour with Kenji, just go ahead and book it. A group of us booked a private tour with him, and we had an absolute blast. He very clearly tailored the material to our interests, and put up with all our in-jokes and shenanigans (that got progressively worse as we imbibed) like a pro. He really just felt like one of the dudes, except he had an encyclopedic knowledge of Japanese whiskey. One note on the whiskeys: I highly, highly recommend grabbing all three that Kenji recommends. They're not cheap, but not super expensive, and they're all incredibly good. Toki is widely available, but you might need to spend some time in advance hunting down or ordering the others. But it's absolutely worth doing!
