As keen whisky drinkers, we spotted a row of scotch whisky bottles as we walked past Ichi, so in we went. Unfortunately all the scotch bottles were empty. A Japanese customer and the Japanese barman recommended a Japanese single malt, which was surprisingly good; like a lighter Speyside malt. My wife had a pleasant elderflower cider, and we both enjoyed the complimentary cocoa chips, which went well with the whisky. We had a very enjoyable conversation, in English, with the two Japanese.
