Post by Stefan of Tokyo Whisky Hub.
tokyo through the drinking glass" - is required reading for anyone interested in the wider drinks scene here. There's very little about whisky, but loads of fascinating articles about other Japanese liquor. She recently visited the Chichibu distillery and wrote a little piece about it for the Japan Times, which you can read online for the time being. In the article, she got confirmation from chief stillman Masashi Watanabe of something that had been an open secret for a while now: the fact that there will be one more release to round out the card series, a Joker.
It'll probably be a while before the Joker make his appearance. Nonjatta will be reviewing the final four - regular - cards (7 of Spades, 6 of Hearts, 5 of Diamonds and A of Clubs) this week, so stay tuned.
