Whiskies such as Ichirose Malt, which is now difficult to obtain on a global level, are sold every year in limited quantities as commemorative bottles.
This year’s bottle is a commemorative bottle for the Tokyo International Bar Show 2020, and is limited to 223 bottles. It is a very valuable bottle.

“The Tokyo International Bar Show 2020 was scheduled to be held on Saturday, May 9 and Sunday, May 10, but has been cancelled due to the spread of the new coronavirus.


What is the Tokyo International Bar Show?

The Tokyo International Bar Show is a major event in the liquor and bar industry, held in countries around the world and named after the region where it is held.
In 2012, the Tokyo International Bar Show was held as the first bar show in Asia. For the first time, the event was co-hosted with “Whiskey Live,” a global event with a high level of recognition in Japan.
The show has been held at Tokyo Midtown in 2012, at the Bellesalle Shibuya Garden in 2013, and at the Tokyo Dome City Prism Hall since 2014, with the number of visitors increasing every year.

The Tokyo International Bar Show is one of the largest events in the bar industry, where you can enjoy demonstrations by world-renowned bartenders, savor precious drinks from Japan and abroad, and deepen your knowledge of alcoholic beverages.

Our Take

This is a very rare whisky with a limited edition of 223 bottles, but it is available at each BAR SHINKAI.

This year’s Tokyo Bar show has already been cancelled, and this will be the second year in a row that it has been cancelled. The Tokyo Bar Show has already been cancelled for the second year in a row, and we hope that it will be held next year.
