Liquors Hasegawa リカーズハセガワ本店
Liquor Hasegawa is a stand up whisky tasting shop at Tokyo Station's Yaesu Underground Mall. It's a huge underground mall so it makes it super confusing to find Hasegawa, especially since they have 2 shops. One location is just a shop and the other one is the tasting shop.
If you're travelling on a budget and can't afford to go to expensive whisky bars for tastings, this would be a great alternative! Although they may not have the ultra premium whisky tastings, they have a wide variety to choose from.
Depending on the price of the bottle, the tasting cost varies:
Bottle Price: Tasting Price:
Less than ￥5 , 000 ￥100
￥5,000 - less than ￥10,000 ￥150
￥10,000 - less than ￥15,000 ￥200
￥15,000 - less than ￥20,000 ￥250
￥20,000 - less than ￥25,000 ￥350
￥30,000 - less than ￥35,000 ￥500
￥35,000 - less than ￥40,000 ￥600
￥40,000 - less than ￥50,000 ￥700
Keep in mind, this isn't a bar. The tasting is supposed to help buyers try it before they purchase bottles. I had a friend that went there just for tasting and they did ask him to leave politely. So if you're not really considering of buying bottles, I'd say just pick 2 or 3 bottles to try.
