Ichiro’s Malt Limited Edition tasting at Zhou Zhou

Whisky lovers are invited to South Yarra’s Zhou Zhou for a rare opportunity to experience the new limited-edition Ichiro’s Malt Japanese Blended Whisky.

Complete with whisky highballs and canapés from the Oriental Teahouse kitchen, the special tasting night will take place on Thursday, 10 October.


Hosted by Jose Dymenstein from Casa de Vinos, this intimate tasting session will feature the coveted Ichiro’s Malt Blended Whisky bottle valued at over $5,000 alongside a stellar line-up of six other Ichiro and Chichibu Malt varieties.

The limited-edition Ichiro’s Malt Japanese Blended Whisky is a smooth blend of Hanyu, Kawasaki and Chichibu. It was awarded the Best Limited-Edition Whisky at the World Whisky Awards 2019 and the 2018 edition also received the Absolute winner award the same year it was released.


At $115 per person, the tasting line-up includes:

Ichiro’s Malt & Grain

Ichiro’s Malt Mizunara Wood Reserve

Ichiro’s Malt & Grain Limited Edition World Blended Whisky (blue label)

Guests will also be welcomed with a whisky highball and paired canapés before tastings commence.


Join Jose Dymenstein for an experience that affords access to a highly sought-after whisky collection, tasting through an exceptional selection of unique Japanese whiskies – a night not to be missed.


Zhou Zhou Bar is the resident drinking den found upstairs at Oriental Teahouse. The upstairs bar has one of the most extensive Japanese whisky collections in Melbourne, despite aged statement and single malt whisky being difficult to source throughout Australia.
