This is, after all, my birthday trip. So something special had to be arranged. I hear that the famous whiskey distillery is not far from here, but we didn't know how to get there. We've seen 'King Car' signs along the way, but it turned out to be the orchid farm. Then, we decided to go with our instincts, and see where the road would take us. Believe it or not, we eventually found the place!
Frankly, it wasn't that hard to find.
The lobby was very spacious, and it looked quite grand.
First, they'd show you a very boring clip. It's about their corporation, and they'll also tell you about the process of distillery.
I like how the piano stands on its own on the stage, with the beautiful garden as background.
And now, let's get to the distillery!
You can also arrange your trip around the schedule of the guided tours.
The whole place is quite massive, but you needn't worry if you're here by car or scooter.
You can already smell the barley even just by the entrance of the distillery!
This is building is the final destination of the trip.
Now, let's head inside the distillery.
At the display area, you can learn all you can about the process.
You can also take lots of pictures here.
First, let's learn a bit about the main ingredient: malted barley.
The first process is called mashing.
Then comes fermentation.
It has to go through this seemingly disgusting process, before becoming the fantastic drink that it becomes eventually.
Next, comes distillation.
The glass is probably for testing?
This must seem familiar to all whiskey lovers.
Barrels after barrels of that delicious fermented drink!
It was already a treat looking at all those casks! If I could get a sip of that whiskey, it'd be even more wonderful!
Another corner of the distillery.
This marks the end of the distillery.
Right afterwards, we come to the spirit castle, where something exciting is about to happen!
Find a place and sit yourself down.
Then, go grab yourself a glass of whiskey for tryout!
Although it was wierd seeing a Christmas tree during March, the whiskey made me let go of these trifling matters!
If you haven't had enough, go to the store, and get your own!
If the large bottles are too expensive, try these tiny bottles.
Or get a gift box for a friend.
The key to the entire trip was the free drink. But they were a bit stingy, weren't they? If they had given a bit more, the trip would've been even more perfect!
