bar miyako and golgo 13 whisky

bar miyako にいらしたことがある方は一度はバックバーのゴルゴ13と目が合ったはず。実際のところ、よくこのボトルについて聞かれるため、改めてご紹介したいと思います!



とここまでご紹介しておきながら、最後にお詫びが一つございます。ゴルゴボトルはほぼ開店当初からあるものですが、当時の願掛けとして「bar miyako 10周年に開ける!」と決めたものです。そのため、今すぐには飲めません…すみません!今年でお店は7周年を迎えるので、あともう少しの辛抱です。ゴルゴを飲みたい方はどうかあと3年お店が繁盛するよう、ご協力ください 笑


If you’ve ever visited bar miyako, chances are you’ve caught sight of Golgo 13 on the back bar at least once. In fact, because I’m often asked about this bottle, I’d like to introduce it once again.

The bottle on the right in the photo was released in 2017, just before the 50th anniversary of Golgo 13’s serialization by Shogakukan, while the one on the left came out in the anniversary year of 2018. Both are Speyside single malts, meticulously selected by whiskey collector Hideo Yamaoka to complement the Golgo 13 label. However, the distillery name has remained undisclosed, although as a hint, it is said to be one recognized by the government in Scotland in 1824.

When we think of Speyside distilleries recognized in 1824, two possibilities come to mind. Hence, the Golgos are placed between the two whisky brands on the back bar, so please feel free to look for them the next time you’re at the bar.

But please let me offer one apology. The bottles have been with me since the opening of the bar, and back then, I decided that – as a way to wish for the bar’s longevity – I would open it only when commemorating bar miyako’s 10th anniversary. Therefore, it’s not available for immediate consumption… so sorry! As the bar is celebrating its 7th anniversary this year, we ask for your patience a little while longer. For those eager to savor Golgo, please support us for another 3 years to make sure we reach 10 years!

This week, we’re open from 7pm to 1am weekdays, 7pm to 12am on Saturday. Hope to see you back at the bar soon!
