Experience Details
Whisky lovers, this one’s for you!

From here, head to Asaka Distillery, the star of the show! This brewery houses Yamazakura Asaka Blended Malt (produced by Asaka Distillery), which was awarded the title of “Best Blended Whisky in the World" at the World Whiskies Awards in 2022. You’ll get to try this world-renowned whisky, tour the distillery, learn about Japanese whisky and the production process, enjoy some shopping time, and create your own custom whisky blend with a “hand-filling” experience.
