House of Suntory Installation

This cherry blossom season, House of Suntory warmly extends an invitation to immerse yourself in a delightful sensory journey, capturing the essence of Japanese culture. Embrace the beauty of the season as we offer South Africans a unique opportunity to revel in the splendour of cherry blossoms right here in our own locale. Join us in celebrating this cultural phenomenon through our exclusive pop-up tasting installation.

The pop-up is rooted in the three pillars of Suntory, namely WA, Omotenashi, and Monozukuri. These three pillars work in harmony to create an immersive experience where visitors can step into the essence of Brand Japan, both physically and digitally. By incorporating the principles of Japanese nature, hospitality, and craftsmanship, this pop-up offers visitors an all-encompassing experience that showcases the best of what Japan has to offer. Moreover, it provides a seamless transition from one exhibit to another, making it easy for visitors to explore and discover the different aspects of Japanese culture. Additionally, the pop-up’s attention to detail and commitment to quality ensures that visitors have an authentic and memorable experience.

In collaboration with like-minded partners, the pop-up amplifies the Brand Japan narrative, adding authenticity and credibility.

Weekend Lifestyle Masterclasses

To start with, craftsmanship takes centre stage with lifestyle masterclasses, aligning meaningfully with the Japanese concept of MONOZUKURI. Additionally, you can elevate your understanding of Japanese craftsmanship and culture through exclusive weekend lifestyle masterclasses starting at 11:00. Moreover, each masterclass, spanning 120 minutes, includes a tantalizing tasting pairing experience.

In addition to the Masterclass, the ticket includes a tasting experience of Roku, Toki and Hibiki, paired with a selection of canapés by KoL. Each participant will also receive a complimentary bottle of Roku Gin to take home.

Daily Brand Tasting Experience

Explore the exquisite realm of Japanese izakaya-style establishments with our daily Brand Tasting Experience. This experience presents skillfully curated Food, Gin, and Whisky pairings, hosted on weekdays (Tuesday-Friday) at both 13:00 and 19:00. These tastings provide the ideal opportunity to relish the authentic essence of Japanese flavours.

Seize the opportunity to immerse yourself in Japanese culture in South Africa through this exclusive House of Suntory pop-up, which will be open for just seven weeks!

To add an extra touch, customers who purchase a bottle of Roku, Toki, or Hibiki from WhiskyBrother in Hyde Park Corner will receive a complimentary custom Japanese furoshiki gift-wrapping cloth with their purchase while stocks last.
