Try four different types of Japanese sake and learn all about the process of making it, starting from the foundations of high-quality rice, water, and koji.
You’ll be astounded by the variety of sake flavors. Using the same basic ingredients, different techniques and brewing conditions can change the sweetness and crispness of the final product. Different degrees of polishing the rice also have a huge impact on the flavor (and the price tag).
