Pop-up whisky bar at Smiths of Smithfield

Later this May, award-winning Japanese whisky Nikka will take over the cocktail bar at Smiths of Smithfield, serving the biggest line-up of quality Japanese whiskies ever assembled in a London bar.

Whisky buffs can sample 17 of Nikka’s premium single-malt and blended whiskies, including blends from the Yoichi and Miyagikyo distilleries, such as the award-winning Taketsuru 17-year-old. They can also learn about the culture of ‘omakase’ – letting the mixologist choose your drink – from Smiths’ resident mixologist Tiziano Tasso and Nikka ambassador Sayumi Oyama.

The Nikka bar will be open from 21-31 May, from 5pm-late (Monday-Saturday). Find out more by calling 020 7251 7950, or visit Smiths of Smithfield’s website.
