For the 28th theartofsake Sake On-nomi, we are doing a special sake crash course for anyone interested in an introduction to Japanese Sake !
Raise your glass if you…
1) Keep buying the same sake bottle over and over because there are way too many options and you’re afraid of picking a bad one
2) Feel like it’s a total shot in the dark every time you try something new
3) Wish you knew enough to describe what you like to a restaurant staff
4) Feel embarrassed about how little you know when you’re around your sake-savvy friends
5) Wonder how people tell the difference between a Yamadanishiki and Omachi sake - and which one you’d like more if you could tell the difference
6) Love sake and wish you knew more about it. Plain and simple!

I enjoy the session as it is informative detailed.
Enjoyed the session very much and surprised to know the actual meaning of the word ‘sake’. Very happy with the 5 tasting samples too! Look forward to joining future sessions & visiting the warehouse soon! Thank you!
At a time when we are largely home bound, it was a fruitful use of time to get acquainted to sake as I’m starting to have a deeper appreciation for it over home drinking over these semi lockdowns going on in Singapore. Bought some books on sake but nothing beats a lecture with slides and bottles to taste so that we are hand held with the differences that comes with each sake. I think the most important takeaway is how rice grade isn’t anything. Apart from 1 of 3 junmai daiginjo in the pack, I actually thought that the 2nd most impressionable flavour happens to be the lower grade honjozo. Looking forward to future classes to further appreciate sake pairing or the distinctions of sake from various regions of Japan.
