Japanese whiskies are now some of the most sought after and highly valued in the world. They have taken traditional Scotch and American methods and imbued them with new ideas and classical Japanese touches. They are now a signature product that not only rings true of whisky but also speaks to Japanese terroir.

In this class, you will learn how these award-winning whiskies are made, but also the history and culture of these great spirits. The goal is for the student to be able to appreciate the subtleties of Japanese whiskies. Kanpai!
