Saturday, 16 May 2015 is the official World Whisky Day this year – a global day of celebration for whisky, whiskey and all their deliciously drinkable cousins.
World Whisky Day invites whisky fans and those who have never tried whisky to try a dram and celebrate the water of life. It’s about making whisky fun and enjoyable, celebrating all types of whisky/whiskey from anywhere in the world and encouraging everyone to enjoy whisky responsibly.
Surry Hills small bar Tokyo Bird is taking World Whisky Day literally with tasting flights traversing the world of whiskies: from Japanese whisky (of course!) to Irish whiskey and Scotch whisky, and even American bourbons.
A three- or five-taste whisky flight will be available from the official World Whisky Day – Saturday, 16 May – through to Wednesday, 20 May.
- The Singles Tour, $30: Tastings (15ml) of 3 single malts – from Japan, Australia and Scotland (with bar snacks)
- The World Tour, $45: Tastings (15ml) of 5 whiskies/bourbons – from Japan, USA, Ireland, Australia and Scotland (with bar snacks)
Whisky nerds and newbies alike will receive background and tasting notes, and drinking and food recommendations as they tour a world of whiskies.
