bar miyako and women in distilling 1 – jane walker / emma walker

あっという間にもう3月ですね!3月8日は国連が制定した「国際女性デー (International Women’s Day)」ですが、その日を起点に3月を「女性史月刊 (Women’s History Month) 」としている国も多くあります。そこで今月は女性が関わるお酒をご紹介していければと思います。




It’s March! As many of you know, March 8 is International Women’s Day, and many countries have since come to celebrate March as Women’s History Month. As such, we’d like to feature spirits which involve women in their creation this month.

The first one up is Jane Walker (photo right). While we’ve introduced this before, this 10-year blend was created by Emma Walker, the 7th master blender for Johnnie Walker and the first female master blender in the brand’s 200 year history. Wow!

Photo left is the Johnnie Walker 12 Year Jane Walker Edition, which was released in the US to coincide with International Women’s Day in 2018. At this point, this was essentially the Johnnie Walker Black Label with limited-edition packaging, but two years later, Jane Walker was released as brand new original limited-edition blend, proving that women just keep on walking!

This week, the bar is open from 7pm to 1am on weekdays, so we hope to see you all back at the bar soon!

bar miyako and johnnie walker ny yankees edition


ご存知の方も多いかと思いますが、bar miyako には多くのジョニーウォーカーがございますが、その中には2018年に限定発売されたニューヨーク ヤンキーズ エディションも!ボトルのラベルがヤンキーズのユニフォームのようにピンストライプになっているほか、箱のストライディング・マンがなんと野球のバットとボールを持ってます。



With the baseball season gearing up, we’d like to introduce an interesting baseball-related bottle in our Johnnie Walker blended scotch collection.

The 2018 limited edition Black Label New York Yankees edition features pin stripes on the label and on the box, the Striding Man ditches his customary walking stick for a baseball bat and ball. The devil in the details!

Please stop by if you’d like to take a closer look at this bottle, or any one of other limited edition Johnnies! This week, we’re open 7pm-1am weekdays, 7pm-12am on Saturday. Hope to see you all back at the bar soon!
