Whisky Tasting Guided by House of Suntory Ambassador Jonathan Armstrong

Join us to learn more about the unique traits of Suntory’s signature whiskies and spirits from our special guest Jonathan Armstrong, the West Coast Brand Ambassador for House of Suntory. Whether you are just entering the world of whisky or a long-time whisky enthusiast, this is an event you won’t want to miss. This rare opportunity allows guests the chance to enjoy Suntory’s prized Yamazaki 12 & 18, Hakushu 12 & 18, and Hibiki 21 paired with Restaurant Suntory’s cuisine, created to meet the high level of quality expected from the Suntory brand.

We've got a full evening of food, drinks, detailed whisky conversations, and a lucky draw in store for you. With 15 years of experience in the spirits industry, our speaker Jonathan Armstrong has an extensive background in the craft bartending, artisanal spirits and the hospitality on both the East and West coasts. Based in Los Angeles, he represents House of Suntory's Next-Generation and Luxury portfolios: Haku, Roku, Toki, Hibiki, Yamazaki, Hakushu, Ao and Legent. His mission is to bring the House of Suntory portfolio to life and build brand awareness and education on Japanese spirits for the hospitality industry and consumers.
