One of the two main whisky events in
is set to take place in December, 2012. The seventh Whisky Festival (organized
by the Tokyo ) 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, Scotch Whisky Research
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.
