Quite a few of our regulars would have met Toru Suzuki when he did a tasting at the bar in 2017, when on-site tastings were still a thing. For those who do not know Suzuki san, he is a great friend of ours, and also our whisky guru!!! He has been in the industry for more than 30 years, and has been running his own bar - The Mash Tun Tokyo in Meguro, for 16 years now.
