IWC 2014 Sake Masterclass

Tuesday 15 April 2014
6.30pm - 8.30pm
The Kia Oval
London, SE11 5SS

Join International Wine Challenge sake judges Kenichi Ohashi, Beau Timken and Yuji Matsumoto for a masterclass in Sparkling and Ordinary (Futsu-Shu) sake.

This session has been designed specifically for UK trade buyers. Participants will be guided through the two different styles and how they are making sake more accessible to UK consumers.

Kenichi will start the session with an overview of the latest sake market data. This will be followed by an in-depth look at Ordinary and Sparkling sake, their brewing processes and their uses. During the session there will also be an opportunity to taste a range of these sakes.

There will be an additional opportunity to try some of 2013’s IWC Trophy Sake as well as an ‘open’ tasting of over 400 sake from this year’s competition covering all styles entered.

Places at the masterclass are limited and get filled very quickly. Please register today to secure your place at this session.
