Slide in home and dust yourself off.

The Dalmore and Sherry Pairing

Cocktail and Flight Night

Wednesday, February 26th 6-9pm

Jen Wren, Ambassador for The Dalmore, will be on hand to expertly guide us through flights of whisky with an emphasis on the use of 30-year-old sherry casks. Thomas Hatch, Moshi Bar Manager, will have crafted cocktails utilizing Dalmore and Gonzalez Byass 30-year-old sherries.

The Dalmore’s heritage dates back to 1263. It was in this year that Colin of Kintail, Chief of the Clan Mackenzie, saved King Alexander III from the fury of a charging stag. In recognition of this noble act the King granted the Mackenzie Clan the right to use the 12 pointed Royal stag emblem on their coat of arms. When descendants of the Clan became owners of The Dalmore distillery in 1867, the Royal Stag became the recognizable icon that proudly adorns each bottle of The Dalmore today; an emblem which encapsulates a rich past whilst also embodying a promise that The Dalmore will remain at the pinnacle of single malt.

Reservations recommended but not necessary.

As always, special pricing for the event only.

House of Suntory Cocktail and Flight Night

Monday, February 17th 6-9pm

Moshi Moshi is proud to host a special evening featuring the wonderful array of spirits from the House of Suntory. Shigeharu “Tommy” Tamaya, ambassador to Beam Suntory, will be in house gracing us with his presence and knowledge about the neighborhood of Japanese crafted whiskies, gin, and vodka. You’ll feel right at home with your own flight of single malt whisky or cozy up with a dram of some of the most sought after age stated expressions around.

In addition, 4 of our signature cocktails that boast the likes of Toki whisky, Roku gin, and Haku Vodka will be on focus. Drift into a Wild Yonder: a yuzu forward twist on a classic Aviation. Basil, house-made strawberry puree and rhubarb bitters are the reasons why we rave about The Barb, or it could be the vodka. Maybe you like to play with fire? Try a Midnight Toke, a smoky medicinal concoction that pushes the boundaries of what an Old Fashioned cocktail means. They say a samurai can kill with both hands, well put down your swords and have an I Can Drink With Both Hands, a Japanese whisky sour infused with sudachi citrus and mandarin liqueur.

As always, special pricing for event night only. Offerings served from 6pm to 9pm, or until supplies last.

Thanks for stoppin’ by and we hope to have you over for dinner and drinks.

Now, a little about The Balvenie:

The Balvenie Distillery is built on the stories that are told from each generation of craftsmen to the next. They’re our lifeblood. It is how we pass on what we know, how we process experiences, and how we create new ideas.

The Balvenie Stories range is a collection of single malt whiskies representing tales of character, endeavour and craft. Each whisky produced by The Balvenie tells a human story, evolving with the protagonists and developing unexpected twists through years of maturation.

“We’ve got craftspeople who have worked here for many many years and they have great stories, it makes for very memorable moments when we tell them.”

Paul John Whisky – Cocktail and Flight Night

The Great Indian Single Malt

Thursday, January 30th 6-9pm

Koray Ozdemir, Ambassador for Paul John will be on hand to expertly guide us through flights and single pours of whisky. You can look forward to enjoying drams from their core line, as well as pulls from a couple of very special bottles that Koray will have in tow. Come on by and find out what surprises we have in store!

Thomas Hatch, Moshi Bar Manager, will be offering one-of-a-kind craft cocktails utilizing Paul John whisky:

A whisky sour with the slightly peated Paul John “Edited” whisky, Kabosu Japanese citrus, chili liqueur, our house-made ginger cocktail syrup and fresh guava. So refreshing, you’ll simply be swept away.

Ever had a Jack Rose before? It’s a classic dating back to the 1920’s that inspired our next featured cocktail. We traded the traditional for the variant as Paul John “Brilliance” whisky shines through this citrus forward treat; lime, house-made hibiscus syrup and gentian amaro combine to delight.

Go boldly into our 3rd concoction as Paul John “Bold” whisky gets stirred in with Green Chartreuse, sweet vermouth, our signature 3 rum house blend and a touch of red lava saline solution. Think somewhere between a Bijou, a Greenpoint- no where in particular but still elegantly delivered; subtly sweet and slightly savory. You won’t want to miss this spirit forward wonder.

Rounding off our evening spotlighting Paul John’s incredible whiskies is an absolute first for us. In addition to enjoying drink to drink, you will also have the option to choose our selection of freshly prepared nigiri to pair with your flight.

Sake and Cheese Flight Night

YES! Sake and cheese are stellar together.

Moshi Moshi welcomes Jesse Pugach, Founder of Fifth Taste this Thursday, August 15th from 6pm to 9 pm. Fifth Taste is a local sake distributor with an amazing profile of sakes that promise to tease and tantalize the umami receptors on your tongue. Jesse is joined by his wife, Liza Kaplansky, a local cheese expert, (currently working for Sweet Grass Dairy) and together they have curated phenomenal pairings of local cheese and Japanese sake for the evening.

Two years ago Mitsuru-san and I went to True Sake‘s Sake Day festival in J-Town where Jesse and Liza had a table where they were offering samples of sake and cheese – we were blown away. Ever since that day Mits and I have talked about recreating that tasting at Moshi. Well, here it is and I hope it to be one in a line of sake and cheese pairings to come.

Please note: while reservations are not necessary they are highly recommended. Also note that the picture does not reflect the actual sake and cheese flight being offered it is only for marketing purposes.

Glenfiddich Flight Night No.2

Glenfiddich Alter

Thursday, June 27th from 6pm to 9pm Moshi is hosting Glenfiddich to fill in the whisky-spaces left open at the last Glenfiddich flight night.

Ashela from William Grant USA will be here pouring an “appreciation dram” to say thank you for all those participating in flights.

Moshi also has rare variant in house: Glenfiddich 2012 Millennium Edition. These casks were filled during millennium celebrations at the distillery and then were personally picked by the Malt Master for inclusion in this special edition. The juice picked spent 2 extra months in ex-bourbon barrels for an extra hit of floral vanilla.

And, of course, Mits will be here polling everyone on how the whiskies are treating everyone.
