As a Grade I Heritage Building and a world-class exhibition space, our Chantal Miller Gallery is currently showing Fusion 2, a highly acclaimed sculptural exhibit exploring the dynamics of East and West.
On this special occasion, ASHK is opening it up to our members after hours! In collaboration with Mizunara, ASHK is bringing three different types of Japanese Shochu inspired by three sculptures in the exhibition to our members inside of our Gallery!
Join us for this exclusive opportunity to immerse yourself in the sculptural master pieces after dark and learn about this hidden spirit of Japan from Shochu-Meister, Ms. Yoshie Kakimoto and experienced spirits specialist, Mr. Chandrakant Mohanty.
