JAPANESE WHISKEY & ICE CARVING (Deposit)
Class notes: Japan is known for more than a few things: cherry blossoms, sushi, and ramen – but when it comes to whiskey, the country is a bit of a newcomer. Their first whiskey distillery debuted in 1924, and they use rice (rather than barley, corn, wheat or rye) to create a notably different flavored spirit. Perfecting their craft has led to an explosion of popularity and acclaim in recent years.
In this two hour advanced class, pupils find out what makes Japanese whiskey so special while enjoying a line up from the houses of Hakashu, Yamazaki, Nikka and Hibiki. A spirit specialist will guide tasters through 4 to 6 of the top rated Japanese marks, in addition to carving a classic Japanese ice ball (should you choose to participate with a Japanese Ice Press or a Paring Knife and Safe Chef Gloves). Socialize with friends, clients and co-workers, in between imbibing and drink instruction.
Cocktail Menu: Experience Hakashu, Yamazaki, Nikka and Hibiki through our program’s “Ways to Enjoy Fine Spirits”
Food Menu: Large, private-event style buffet featuring a wide array of veggies and dips in addition to a charcuterie of cured meats, bread and cheese board (optional upgrades available).
Total Private Event Cost: $129/guest+tax
