bar miyako and timorous beastie

2020年は子年とうことで、今週はボトルにかわいい二十日鼠が描かれたダグラスレイン社のブレンデッドモルト「ティモラス ビースティ(臆病な小動物)」のご紹介です!




今週の #barmiyako は通常通り平日19 時〜25時、土曜の19 時〜24時まで営業してます。皆様のお越しを心よりお待ち申し上げております!

To commemorate 2020 being the Year of the Mouse in Japan, this week’s spotlight is on a scotch named after a mouse – Douglas Laing’s Highland malt blend, “Timorous Beastie.”

Many of you may know Douglas Laing for its peaty and punchy Islay malt blend “Big Peat,” but Timorous is a sweet, rich, floral blend reminiscent of honey toast.

The name is taken from the poor timorous beastie which has its nest destroyed and life upended by a plough in “To a Mouse,” written by Scottish poet Robert Burns. Why not ponder the fickle fate of mice and men over a glass of Timorous?

It was also pointed out to me that January 25 is Burns’ Night in Scotland, where the poet is commemorated by his fans. Another perfect reason to try some Beastie!

bar miyako is open as usual this week from 7pm to 1am on weekdays and from 7pm to 12 midnight on Saturday. I hope to see you all back at the bar!

bar miyako and australian gin


今週の #barmiyako の営業ですが、13日は祝日のため定休日となっております。また、18日は誠に勝手ながら臨時休業とさせていただきますが、14日〜17日までは通常通り19時〜25時まで営業しておりますので、皆様のお越しを心よりお待ち申し上げております。

I’m focusing on Australian gins this week, as my thoughts and prayers go out to all those dealing with the devastating bushfires. I now have Botanic Australis gin, an herbaceous, woody gin infused with 14 native Australian botanicals, in addition to the popular Christmas Pudding and Bloody Shiraz gins from Four Pillars distillery. Please stop by if you’d like a taste or to share a moment for Australia.

This week, bar miyako is closed on Monday for a national holiday and on Saturday but we’re open as usual from Tuesday to Friday from 7pm to 1am so I hope to see you all back at the bar soon.
