Explore a new way of drinking sake!
In this exhibition, we will show you one of the best ways to drink sake properly on sweltering hot days. One of the most beguiling and engaging aspects of sake is its ability to be enjoyed over a wide range of temperatures. One of our purposes in this exhibition is to have you try each sake at its recommended temperature ranges. Different temperatures suit different sake and we encourage you to taste each of them at a cool temperature at this exhibition. We will exhibit six kinds of sake each of which have strong features and flavors and are best drunk cold.
Sake that is served cold will generally taste drier, fruitier and with a lighter flavor. These sake will be available for tasting at the very reasonable price of $3-4 for mini glasses or O-choko, which are Japanese traditional sake cups.
We will be serving the sake in the three ways below:
- Reishu (sake served chilled)
- On the Rocks
This will be a great means for enhancing your knowledge of sake and learning which one is your favorite. We encourage you to experiment with all the different sake!
In addition, during this exhibition, we will hold a sake event in which attendees can explore a new pairing of three different sake with authentic Spanish Ham products. Attendees will also listen to a small sake lecture from Kikusui Shuzo. Please click here for more info! We’re looking forward to seeing you there!
