From Hiroshima’s soft, sweet brews to the clean, dry sake of snowy Niigata, regional characteristics often play a role in the flavor profile of sake. At Japan Society’s 19th annual sake lecture & tasting event, sake expert John Gauntner examines how factors such as raw materials, climate, and regional cuisine can affect the taste of sake from different parts of Japan. The lecture will be followed by a tasting reception with more than 30 kinds of premium sake, including two new brewers.

Co-organized by Japan Sake Export Association.

Tickets: $39/$34 Japan Society Members*
