Nikka Distillery Japanese Tasting Dinner with Paired Drinks

About Nikka Distillery Japanese Tasting Dinner with Paired Drinks

Founded in 1934 by Suntory's first master distiller, Nikka has risen to become Japan's second largest distiller, producing a wide range of single malts as well as their impressive blended whisky range.

We will be adding this unique brand and their host of whiskies to our extensive gantry and in celebration of this we are hosting a special tasting evening which includes a bespoke 4 course tasting dinner paired with 4 Nikka beverages.

As Nikka is a Japanese distillery we have used this as inspiration for our tasting menu. Our menu is jam packed with Asian delights and the liquor has also been used in other elements of the food, from steaming to dipping sauces.

Each course will be perfectly paired with a whisky from the Japanese distillery and the fourth and final course will be used to debut their brand new gin - Nikka Coffey Gin features a selection of enjoyably vibrant botanicals, including amanatsu, kabosu, shikuwasa and yuzu, as well as sansho pepper, among others.

Enjoy all this for only £20 per person!

This is a must book in advance event and we only have very limited numbers. Should you wish to come along please either drop us an email on info@thegardenerglasgow.co.uk, call us on 0845 166 6028 or head over to our website to enquire!

Some information on the brand below...
The advent of Japanese whisky has been widely attributed to Masataka Taketsuru who began his whisky pilgrimage in 1918, when he journeyed to the illustrious liquid’s spiritual heartland, the Celtic nations. Masataka’s family ran a sake brewery, still in operation today, and as such he was taught the skills of alcohol production, furthering his education at the University of Glasgow where he studied chemistry. This and his apprenticeships at Scotch whisky distilleries afforded him a great depth of knowledge about production and blending. In 1920, Masataka Taketsuru married Jessie ‘Rita’ Roberta Cowan and the couple lived for a few months in Campbeltown. They travelled to Japan later that year.

In 1934, Masataka established Nikka Whisky and his first distillery was built in Hokkaido and named Yoichi. The area was well-suited to whisky production, though its location was remote. In 1969, a second distillery was founded, Miyagikyo Distillery, or Sendai Distillery as it has been known. Its first whiskies were sold as Sendai Single Malt and it was not until Asahi Brewery’s acquisition of Nikka in 2001 that the Miyagiko Distillery was expanded to cope with national demand. The Nikka range includes the single malts from the pair of distilleries as well as a range of vatted and blended malts.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Nikka Distillery Japanese Tasting Dinner with Paired Drinks are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
