Dear Sake Customers,
Due to the current climate of Covid-19, we have had to cancel many sake events, including Sake Matsuri Spring 2020.
As such, we have decided to push our Spring Sake Warehouse Sale online!
In conjunction with International Women's Day on 8th March, our theme for this Warehouse sale will be on Sake Breweries with strong women influences!
Women were not even allowed into sake brewery until the 1960s. Currently, there are only around 50 breweries, out of over 1200 sake breweries, who have a female sake brewer.
We are proud to represent 5 sake breweries with either a female sake brewer, or a female owner. We believe that women, although the minority, are making a big impact on the sake industry. Kanpai!
