Who we are
Inter Rice Asia was established in 2008 as a premium saké distributor and ambassador in Singapore. We import high quality Japanese saké directly from the brewery by sourcing and visiting the artisans in Japan. Originally fixated on Niigata Prefecture, the ‘Burgundy’ region in Japan, we continue to expand our extensive portfolio to include boutique saké breweries from other prefectures. We are focus
Adrian Goh is the Marketing Director, Saké Sommelier of Inter Rice Asia and brainchild of The Art of Saké. Driven by his passion for all things saké, the forward-thinking visionary actively seeks out breweries in Japan to add to our growing list of saké breweries where he meets saké masters, selects the premium saké and curates the collection. Shuffling between Japan and Singapore, Adrian has been triple certified by the Saké Service Institute, Saké Sommelier Association and Saké Education Council, and sat on the judging panel at the 2015 International Wine Challenge in London, as a Saké Judge.
What we do
The Art of Saké was developed to educate consumers and promote the enjoyment of Japan’s national beverage as a lifestyle through curated saké appreciation initiatives.
The Art of Saké events include corporate talks, seminars, workshops, food pairing sessions, private classes, curated subscription plans and personal shopping services. Inter Rice Asia has been hosting fortnightly meet ups for the Singapore Saké community, where beginners and connoisseurs alike may come together to partake in the art of saké appreciation of our premium and luxury saké.
Beyond curating brands and types of premium saké to retail and dining outlets, Inter Rice Asia provides non-Japanese restaurants with complete 360o saké solutions including service training, saké profiling and food pairing into their existing menu with sommelier sessions.
