You’ll focus on the secret methods of sake brewing which have been passed down for generations -Get the chance to compare the differences between Western wine and beer production and sake brewing, to understand what makes the sake brewing process so unique

Sake Tasting with an Expert
Through our expert-lead tasting session you’ll get the chance to learn the unique characteristics of different varieties of sake. Also discover which type you most prefer and how to identify your favourites on menus and bottle labels. Our expert will help you notice the difference in taste between ‘junmai’ sake (which has no added alcohol or sugar) and alcohol-added sake. We’ll also explain the effects of polishing rice on scent and flavour. Pure sake, refined sake, cloudy sake, aged sake – we’ll help you discover the distinguishing characteristics of each type.
