Talk & Tasting past event

Sake expert John Gauntner returns to Japan Society for our popular annual sake talk and tasting event. This year, he dispels some of the myths surrounding sake, guiding attendees through the finer distinctions between varieties. Whether it’s nama (unpasteurized) or pasteurized, junmai (pure) or alcohol-added, Gauntner will show how each kind of sake is delicious in its own way. After the talk, taste over 30 types of premium sake from breweries throughout Japan. With Gauntner’s expert guidance, everyone from beginners to seasoned sommeliers will learn something new about enjoying everything sake has to offer. Co-organized by Japan Sake Export Association.
