Sake Tasting

DJW Socializing - Special Edition



2021-12-08, 19:00 - 20:30 (MEZ)


As the year draws to a close, we would like to invite our members in Germany to join us for a festive sake tasting.

Sake, or nihonshu, is often referred to as Japan's national beverage. It is made from polished rice, and just like with wine in Germany, there are many different varieties of sake, depending on the region and the degree to which the rice is polished, as well as other factors. Sake expert Ms. Naomi Ito will guide us through the evening, giving background information on the manufacturing process of sake and explaining the differences of the varieties of sake. We will taste four different varieties from different parts of Japan, each with their own distinctive flavour and character.

Join us for this festive event to end the year in a good mood! Seats are limited!
