Japanese Whisky Tasting at Tsuru

Tsuru will again host an exclusive tutored Japanese whisky tasting. After the success of last year’s event, Joel Harrison from Cask Strength has returned, this time with a special variety of rare and harder-to-find whiskies. Those attending will have the opportunity to taste five distinctive selections paired with special dishes prepared by Tsuru’s chef.

Mr. Harrison will be on hand to introduce and discuss each whisky. Tasting notes and information will also be available for guests to take home. Japanese whisky is similar in style to Scottish whisky and regularly competes for the top spot at world whisky tastings.
