For those who still haven’t figured out what to get the dads on their list for Father’s Day, here are a few sales and an event we thought might might come in handy.
Father’s Day Whiskey Tasting
Explore the history of Japanese Whiskey with a tasting event hosted by Cask, Umami Mart and Suntory on Father’s Day at Local Edition. $100 buys admission for two adults and a bottle of Hibiki 12-year-old whiskey wrapped in a limited edition furoshiki cloth designed by artist Shinsuke Kawahara. Suntory is a Japanese brewing and distilling company that’s been in the business since 1899, which leads us to think they’ve had plenty of time to perfect the arts.
As for the furoshiki, (Japanese scarf), Kawahara’s design features a block print image of one of Japanese whiskey’s founding fathers, Shinjiro Torri’s face.
When: Sunday, June 17. 2 tastings, 1pm – 3pm or 5pm – 7pm
Admission: $100, tickets available here.
