Sake_masterclass

There are over 1,500 sake breweries across Japan in every prefecture bar one. Like Wine sake offers characteristics that are unique to each region and sub-region and it is both challenging but possible to find these characteristics.

2nd annual Sake@UK Sake Masterclass  (Sunday 25th September, Baglioni Hotel) will explore 5 different regions, covering the “main character” of each region. This will be a unique opportunity for sommeliers, bar managers and beverage professionals to taste unique sakes from different regions and identify the main feature & identity of each region.
