At this intimate tasting event for our inaugural Sake & Food Festival, we invite you to join us for a festive evening of sake and food. Sample a selection of sake from over 25 different breweries from across Japan, alongside a menu of otsumami, or small bites paired with alcohol, crafted to fit the occasion. Do you prefer sake with a gentle flavor and fruity notes, or something more full-bodied and dry? Which flavors pair best with your favorite sake? Take this opportunity to discover your preferences, try out new food pairings, and expand your tastes to new horizons.
