Hakkaisan Virtual Sake Tasting

Who says sake only goes well with Japanese cuisine?  


At this guided virtual tasting with Tsutomu Tanaka, deputy director of the award-winning Hakkaisan brewery, mix and match some top-shelf sake with your favorite dishes to deepen your appreciation of this delightfully complex beverage. 


With the purchase of a bottle of the Club’s Hakkaisan sake, Members will receive an exclusive invitation to this enlightening event, as well as a complimentary bottle of Hakkaisan's tokubetsu junmai gensyu, a special summertime brew.

Don’t stop there, though—order from a special, chef-curated sake tasting menu (see below) and take your palate to the next level. 


To best enjoy this unique event, attendees should also prepare between three and five different types of glasses to compare the tasting experience. The evening will also include a video presentation of Hakkaisan’s brewing facilities in Niigata Prefecture, one of Japan’s prime sake-producing areas.
