For 5 nights only, Tommy’s Champagne Parlour in the Seafarers Building at the heart of Auckland’s Britomart are delighted to present a Masterclass in Suntory Whisky distilleries – the soul places of Japanese whisky – highlighting 40 years of excellence in distilling and blending Japanese grain whiskies in celebration of the launch of The Chita Single Grain Whisky.
Hosted by New Zealand House of Suntory brand ambassador Rory Donnelly, this promises to be an evening to remember, exploring Suntory’s rich whisky distilleries with a highlight on The Chita, the newest expression from the House of Suntory, a mild, smooth, single grain whisky with unparalleled sophistication and a clean, clear finish. Shinji Fukuyo, Suntory Master Blender, describes ‘The Chita Single Grain Whisky as the “serenity of Japanese whisky.” Like the misty, calm seas of The Chita Peninsula on a day of elegant stillness, this airy whisky has a presence that is unmistakably serene.
Tickets include a Chita Highball on arrival, alongside a range of expressions including Hibiki Japanese Harmony, Yamazaki Distillers Reserve, Hakushu Distillers Reserve, Hakushu 12YO, and Toki. Attendees will also be treated to an assortment of delicious shared dishes made by renowned Chef Yukio Ozeki of Azabu, designed to complement each tasting.
Be sure to secure your tickets now as spaces are limited. There is also an opportunity to purchase The Chita Single Malt Whisky on the night (limited stock only).
Masterclass in Suntory Whisky distilleries – $145pp and takes place Thursday 29th April, Friday 30th April, Thursday 6th May, Friday 14th May, Saturday 15th May.
