Pairing chocolate with whisky is always an exquisite experience and this is why the month of Father’s Day is the perfect opportunity to host this tasting event. Each participant will receive 5 samples of Japanese Whisky (50ml each) and a selection of 4 Dark Chocolates (20g each) on the day of the event to enjoy this exclusive virtual masterclass.

Some of the most iconic whisky distilleries in Japan will be featured during the tasting: Suntory Kakubin (Blended), Mars IWAI Blue (Blended), Nikka From The Barrel (Blended), Chita (Single Grain), and Matsui Sakura (Single Malt). The Japanese whisky selection will be paired with different dark chocolates (Dark Chocolate 56%, 65%, 72%, and 85%).


Knowing that Father’s Day is an important day for all Fathers to spend quality time with their family, The Flavors of Japanese Whisky & Filipino Artisan Chocolate has been scheduled for the weekend after Father’s Day on Saturday, June 26, 2021 at 6:00 PM. The selection of dark chocolates will definitely be a great occasion for Fathers to share this tasting experience with their partners and to appreciate together Japanese Whisky.
