The House of Suntory Dojo Advocacy Programme is an immersive experience for bartenders to learn about Japanese bartending from Japanese craft masters and industry leaders. Not only the skills but also the philosophy behind the true art of Japanese bartending.
Exclusively available to 100 bartenders from across the UK, The Dojo programme will provide six months of intensive growth and development. Four Masterclasses over two dates will be hosted in July & September, led by Suntory UK Ambassador Rafaele Di Monaco and authentic Japanese Masters of Craft.
Test and demonstrate your new skills after each Masterclass by taking on Kaizen Classic challenges to win a variety of prizes including Japanese Bar Tools, Suntory Whiskies and Unique Experiences.
The DOJO Finale will take place in London in November and will consist of a full day of competition, with famed Bar Master Ueno-san of Bar High Five in Tokyo.
12 Best-In Class Bartenders will join Ueno-san for a Masterclass in Japanese Bar Culture and Methods.
