Many Asian cultures have a deep appreciation for whiskey drinking — in Japan, the spirit has practically become the national drink. Whiskey-loving clients heading to Kaohsiung, Taiwan, can sample some of the best Asian whiskies, along with bottles from all around the world, at The Drunken Master Whisky Bar.
The Drunken Master features more than 400 different brands of whiskey, covering every conceivable type — bourbon, Scotch, rye and more. The bottles come from distilleries all over the world, but there is an especially impressive collection of Asian whiskies.
While the whiskey selection is awesome, what really makes this bar special is the welcoming ambiance and friendly staff. The bar is the passion project of Li Chungfeng, president of the Formosa Whiskey Club and organizer of the city’s first whiskey fair. Chungfeng takes pride in every bottle he serves — on a recent visit, he was happy to share some of his favorite brands and the stories behind them.
This bar is one of those hole-in-the-wall finds that travelers will brag about when they get home. Do your clients a favor — and make yourself look like a true expert — by suggesting a drink (or two) at Kaohsiung’s The Drunken Master.
