Welcome to the mother of all Kyoto bars: there can barely be a single bar lover in this city who hasn’t stepped into this temple to quality drinks. It’s famed for its vast collection of sakes, around 1,200 different varieties, and Scottish whisky is well represented too with approximately 600 single malts including some extremely rare bottles. The menu extends the Scottish theme in a slightly bonkers fashion – the haggis pizza is an acquired taste – while the cocktails are pretty great too. It’s a relaxed, informal spot with friendly bar staff – a Kyoto must-visit.

We were recommended this bar by a local chef at a cool Ramen joint, I wasn't expecting to step into such a stuffy atmosphere, we were underdressed and about 30 years underage it seemed. The bar staff were efficient but not friendly, the menu was limited only citing the word "wine" or a few types of whiskey. I asked for a cocktail menu and was told abruptly "we can make anything". I tried a Pisco Sour, which to be fair I've learnt is never as good at a fancy bar as a latin restaurant, it was distinctly average and had almost no flavour. My husband ordered a whisky, all fine, hard to mess that up though. Overall, it was a disappointment and didn't deliver the quality or class on which it bases its reputation.
