Takehara 1894, 44% ABV
True masters of their craft deserve to be honoured, and this is our tribute to the ‘Father of Japanese Whisky’.
This cocktail pays homage to Masataka Taketsuru – the chemist, businessman and visionary who founded the Japanese Whisky industry. Born in 1894, he was the first Japanese ever to master how to make whisky and went on to found Nikka Whisky. In dedication to these achievements this cocktail focuses on Nikka from the Barrel, which we’ve then paired with dry sherry and orange bitters. Elegant, sophisticated, complex – we hope we do the great man and his legacy justice.
To serve: Stir over ice and strain into a Martini glass. Garnish with an orange zest and toast to Takehara. Kanpai!
