The President's and Jury Award will be announced during the awards ceremony at the residence of the Ambassador of Japan on November 5.
Kura Master has been organised annually since 2017. The idea is to pick out the best Sakes by French people, for French Cuisine. The jury is made up by sommeliers and other F&B professionals, and are exclusively Europeans, and mainly French.
