Polished Rice and All Things Nice — A Japanese Sake Soirée, sponsored by the Japan Sake & Shochu Makers Association | Thursday 21st October 2021

As well as being Japan’s national beverage, sake continues to grow its appeal internationally, especially amongst wine lovers.

Premium examples of sake — brewed using rice which has been meticulously polished, washed, steamed and fermented by the magical power of micro-organisms; Koji and yeast — offer a distinct yet comparable tasting experience to that of fine wines.

From earthy ‘junmai’ and elegant ‘daiginjo’, to cloudy ‘nigori’ and umami-rich ‘koshu’, this walkaround tasting represents a rare opportunity to taste 17 premium examples of Japanese sake, chosen from across the major sake styles.

Sponsored by the Japan Sake & Shochu Makers Association, whether sake novices or enthusiasts, we encourage Members to meet over a glass and ‘Kanpai’!

To guide you through your sake journey, some of the UK’s leading experts will be on hand to answer any of your questions about the history and culture of sake, its production, regionality, where to buy in the UK, and more.

Whether you are newly curious about Japanese sake or are just feeling in need of a refresher, this an evening not to be missed.
