Friends With Drams X Rudder X Highlander Inn Ningyocho

2020 has been a challenging year for many, particularly those in the hospitality industry. The impact of Covid-19 continues to be felt in Japan where cases are still increasing caused by a third wave.

To this end, Friends With Drams is collaborating with Rudder (an independent bottler and whisky distributor in Japan) to conduct a virtual tasting where 100% of the proceeds will go towards Highlander Inn Ningyocho.

Curated from private collections, the tasting flight comprises 6 drams (20ml each) of the following:

1. Art Session Glenrothes 1997 19Y (50.2%)
2. Art Session Benrinnes 1997 19Y (49.6%)
3. Art Session Dailuaine 1992 25Y (54.0%)
4. Art Session Ben Nevis 1996 22Y (51.1%)
5. Whisky Talk Fukuoka 2020 Blair Athol 1988 30Y (51.0%). Highly exclusive with only 84 bottles.
6. Highlander Inn Secret Orkney 1998 21Y (51.7%) - an upcoming release

All of the bottlings are exclusive to Japan and most are sold out and can only be found on online auctions, so this is an exceptionally rare selection. Each set will go for $168 and includes delivery to your doorstep. Please place your order by 9 Jan, 12pm to ensure that the set reaches you ahead of the session.

The virtual tasting will take place on 14 Jan 2021, Thursday, at 8pm. We will be joined by Tsuyoshi Kitakaji (well-known whisky buyer) and Tatsuya Minagawa (proprietor of Highlander Inn) and other guests "live" from Japan and Scotland respectively.

Participants will also have the opportunity to purchase exclusive Rudder bottlings after the event. One lucky participant will also get the opportunity to purchase a bottle of the Art Session Ben Nevis at retail price (with landed taxes) for delivery in Singapore only - this is a highly coveted bottle with a small outturn of 120 bottles, that is naturally already sold out.
