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.

      Very good evening; we were late and they kindly waited for us. We had a very informative session on sake, how to recognize the different kinds; how to buy them and how to enjoy them and match them to the food we were eating.
