Whisky for Tohoku

What's better than a swish fundraising event? A swish fundraising event at an even swisher location, with super-swish bottles of whisky: that's what. Organised by a local drinks writer, this booze-sodden charity drinkathon offers a chance to sample rare single cask whiskies provided by The Scotch Malt Whisky Society Japan, in a plush location that most people probably never knew existed: the University of Tokyo's wood-paneled S bar. There'll be some pricey bottles on offer, but all shots are being sold at a flat 1,000 yen, 500 yen of which – along with the cover charge – will go to supporting the quake relief efforts of SHARE. As the organiser says: 'win-win.'
