Spirit Masterclass: Japanese Whisky

Led by Wine Director DJ Kearney

Thursday, December 6
6 – 7:15 p.m.
$125 plus tax and service charge 

The story of Japanese whisky is one of the most extraordinary in the world of spirits. From romance, war, corporate rivalry and massive human ambition sprung a whisky industry that commands a global cult following.

Learn about Japan’s emergence as a preeminent whisky player, meet the pioneers, and taste some thrilling examples of whisky from Japan. This session builds upon the previous Masterclass our Club Director of Wine, DJ Kearney, held in October 2021, but features an entirely new lineup of whiskies, including one of the most coveted and collectible of all time, The Yamazaki 12 Year Old!
