Event details

You’ll learn about the origins of this fabled drink, the etiquette and the way it is produced. There is also an introduction to the various types of sake – this includes trying five different types at different temperatures – from sparking to a premium Ginjo or Daiginjo. You will be given a complete set of tasting notes and an official certificate of participation from the Sake Sommelier Academy.

Before the event, we will send you four Sake samples which you must put into the fridge as soon as you receive them. We’ll also send you information about each one, a tasting mat and instructions as to how to prepare them before the tasting. You’ll taste some warm, some at room temperature and some chilled – all will be explained in the pack we send to you. 

You don’t need any prior knowledge of sake (you do need to be over 18 as there’s tasting involved)
