Nikka Whisky Masterclass
Time Out says
Learn all about Japanese whisky at one of three special masterclasses
We do not mean to alarm you, but there is a massive Japanese whisky shortage in the world. Whisky lovers outside Japan has realised that Japanese whisky is among the best in the world, and all of a sudden it has become an extremely hot commodity.
Once you try it it's easy to see why, and you can go on a deep dive into some of the finest Japanese whisky on Earth at a masterclass at Above Board, which was named Time Out's Best Cocktail Bar in 2018.
Award-winning Japanese bartender Hiroyasu Kayama is coming to Melbourne to take us through Nikka whisky on September 15. The masterclass is running over three sessions on the same night, and Kayama will guide whisky lovers through a series of six cocktails made using Nikka whiskies. Each cocktail will be made using local ingredients to complement the whiskies' rich flavours.
Tickets are $130, and you get six cocktails and snacks.
