Turning Japanese at the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival

If you’re heading to the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival this April it looks like you’ll be able to try some Japanese whiskies as well as the Scottish variety…

Turning Japanese – Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival broadens horizons with unexpected tastes and experiences

If you think that Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival simply celebrates amber nectar from the world-famous region that is home to more than half of Scotland’s malt whisky distilleries then think again – visitors will have the opportunity to sample a range of Japanese whiskies too.

While the chance to meet key players in the Speyside whisky industry and join exclusive behind the scenes distillery tours are in high demand, the festival’s reputation as a premier whisky event means that some unexpected drams will be on offer during the experience.

Although Speyside distilleries would argue that their produce is the best in the world, Japanese whiskies have been making their mark. Speyside’s The Highlander Inn at Craigellachie is owned by Tatsuya Minagawa from Japan and is home to one of the world’s largest collections of Japanese whiskies outside South East Asia. It is here that Global Brand Ambassador Yumi Yashikawa will discuss ‘Everything about Chichibu Distillery’ with a rare chance to try brand new bottlings and new cask samples of whiskies not yet available in the UK.

Daisen G Craft Beers

Each year, around Christmas I’ve managed to collect enough credit card points to cash them in for something from their (not particularly extensive catalogue).
Usually I just have enough for a box of 24 Asahi, but this year seems I’d spent more than usual and managed to get enough points for these great Japanese Craft beers from Daisen G!

Fizzics Waytap : Draft Beer At Home

This Indiegogo venture has been on Indiegogo for a couple of months now but it’s only just crossed my

It’s a device to turn your canned or bottled beer into a foamy, draft pint!

Previously, this company launched the Fizzics which is a draft beer system that takes all sizes of cans and bottles and using their special technology, creates a freshly drawn beer straight from the tap.

The Fizzics Waytap appears to be a more portable version of this and has already raised over $1,000,000! (over 2000% of their initial asking price), on IndieGoGo.

It does look very cool and a nice draft beer in the home is always welcome but unfortunately the $120 price (on IndieGoGo, RRP will be $150) is a bit out of my budget range.

The Indiegogo campaign can be found here if you want to find out more about the WayTap.
