Why Whiskey is Not For Boring People

As we gear up to celebrate National Whiskey Month in September, we’d like to share a few reasons on why you should join us for our Japanese Whiskey Pairing Dinner on Thursday, September 21, 2017, at 6:30 pm.

Did you know whiskey is healthy? It actually means “water of life”, is low in carbs and is fat-free. One shot has only .04 carbs. So, go ahead and put on your skinny jeans and join us for a Hibiki ‘Japanese Harmony’!

Whiskey also has health benefits. Research shows single-malt whiskeys have more ellagic acid than red wine. Ellagic acid is an antioxidant found in most fruits that might absorb rogue cancer cells. More research still needs to be done but it certainly couldn’t hurt to try.

Another health benefit of whiskey is it might reduce your chance of having a stroke as long as you limit yourself to one drink a day. It can also help protect you from heart disease.

Whisky is anything but boring with over 5,000 varieties of single-malt Whisky.

A couple of other interesting facts about whiskey is that it can’t be frozen and an unopened bottle will last 100 years! A half-full bottle will stay good for five years.

So, now that we have you convinced that whiskey is good for you, check out the menu for our Japanese Whiskey Pairing Dinner.
