Welcome to Basic Sake 101

What You Will Experience

This is an online program of our popular sake experience Kyoto Insider Sake Experience. You are interested in sake and you may have questions such as... "I love sake but am not sure how to choose the bottle I like at the Japanese restaurant" "I don't understand the difference between sake." "What is the difference between hot and cold sake?" Basic sake 101 will clear all of your basic questions on sake, and you will be able to pick your favorite at the restaurant or online bottle shops.  

Learn All the Basics of Sake at Home

Basic sake 101 focuses on "picking the information from sake bottles". When looking at sake bottles, you may come up with lots of questions - the guide will answer all of them for you. The class will be carried out following the basic questions by participants such as;
・ Looking at bottles with labels in Japanese, is it really sake or something else?
・ What is the ingredients and its differences of each sake?
・ Want to know about rice polishing percentage and how it works.
・ Would love to find the favorite category of sake from all.
・ Which sake is good to drink with hot or cold?
・ Want to learn the way to do tasting at home. What kind of glasses are preferred?
Your own unique questions are welcomed!
It would be nice If you can prepare some sake bottles by yourself prior to the class, but we can also provide some pictures of sake bottles to show you. So participating without having sake bottles is no problem!
