Experience Details

Embark on a unique cocktail adventure in Shibuya, where you'll delve into Japanese fruit-based beverages with expert guidance. A seasoned Japanese bartender will skillfully blend two Japanese fruit liqueurs with mint and other herbs, creating a series of refreshing drinks that perfectly capture and balance the sweet and sour profiles of two beloved Japanese fruits. Ume plum liqueur (umeshu) is made by macerating tangy Japanese plums with alcohol and rock sugar, neutralizing the fruit's sourness and making for a refreshing drink. Yuzu, a Japanese citrus fruit, is also enjoyed as a liqueur known as yuzushu. These fruity, sour drinks are not overly sweet, making them the perfect option for a refreshing drink. An English-speaking sake sommelier will lead you through the tasting session, sharing insights into each glass's flavor profiles and explaining their different characteristics while discussing fascinating aspects of traditional sake brewing techniques. To wrap up the experience, you will enjoy another refreshing drink: a cocktail based on nigiri (cloudy) sake. This type of sake is filtered with a coarser mesh than usual, allowing thicker rice particles to pass through and giving it its characteristic white appearance. Enjoy the raw, full flavors of this unique type of sake. This experience takes place in Kubota, a sleek, modern sake bar serving various kinds of sake. A great place to learn about Japan's national drink, Kubota is located right next to Shibuya Station and is easily accessible from most major transport hubs within Tokyo.
