Free entry for Sake + Shochu Gumi members and customers who purchase any Japanese whisky from Oct 12-28 RSVP at and we will send you Zoom info!

We recorded this event and uploaded it to our Youtube channel! Watch it here.

We are so excited to announce our very first Zoom cocktail event with our great friend Chris Lane, bartender extraordinaire and Skurnik Wines West Spirits Specialist.

Ever wonder how to use Japanese whisky in cocktails? Which whisky to use? What cocktails to make? Well you're not alone – we receive these questions all the time, and so does Lane. 

After 10+ plus behind the stick at bars and restaurants all over the Bay Area, Lane spent five years as bar manager at Oakland's Ramen Shop. So he knows a thing or two about how to incorporate Japanese whiskies into cocktails.

He's chosen Iwai 45 to make two cocktails during the event. So get the recipes on our blog (plus some extras), line up all the ingredients, and get ready for Lane to take us on a wild Zoom ride with Japanese whisky!
