Since opening in 2014, Sunday’s Grocery has become synonymous with Japanese Whisky due to its ability to source and import rare and esteemed bottles from distilleries across Japan. On October 21st, 2015, Sunday’s will be adding to its diverse collection with the launch of its own single malt, produced at Akashi Distillery.Also known as White Oak Distillery, Akashi is considered to be the oldest Japanese Whisky distillery as it was the first in Japan to acquire a distillation license in 1919. Although its Whisky production is small, the relationship that Elliot Faber, Beverage Director at Sunday’s Grocery, developed with the Akashi brewers allowed for the creation of this exclusive single malt that is uniquely aged for 5.5 years in a single sherry cask. This Whisky shows notes of apple cider and cocoa nib on the nose. As you taste, the same aromas from the nose lay a foundation and the Whisky develops smoky on the palate with notes of hickory sticks and sultana raisins. On the finish, there is a suggestion of tannin and inflections of ginger candy and black liquorice.The Sunday’s x Akashi Single Malt Whisky will be available for sale during a special event at Sunday’s Grocery on Wednesday, October 21st. This event will take place from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m. and will be open to the public. With only 100 bottles produced, this Whisky will only be available while quantities last. During the event, each bottle will come with a limited edition, gold “Sunday’s Are Better Than Others” signature t-shirt.Sunday’s Grocery is a liquor store, curated convenience store and take-away sandwich shop in Hong Kong - a neighborhood establishment offering a variety of drinks, food and artisanal products, with a focus on quality and creativity.
