The Japanese sake is a traditional Japanese rice wine brewed from the fermentation of polished rice. Originated back since the Nara period in Japanese history over a thousand years ago, the popularity and importance still prevails for this Japanese national beverage today. This workshop will provide an overview of the Japanese sake from its history to actual Japanese sake tasting. Aspects such as the Japanese sake history, brew varieties, serving methods and etiquette, seasonality and customs will be explored through this appreciation workshop with a range of matching sake.
The School may make available related programme information material at the seminar.
