Like sake? Love chocolate? Discover how well they can go together!

Pairing chocolate and sake is tricky, especially hard bar chocolate with its complex flavours that unfold upon melting. Chocolate specialist Andrea Thurner of the small batch project brought her extensive knowledge to bear on the problem and together we created this amazing tasting set!

We’re proud to present four superb sake and four delicious chocolate bars to show you just how wonderful these two great things can be together.

***PLEASE NOTE: You must buy a ticket in advance for this event. I only bring enough sake and chocolate for tickets bought, and arrange the distanced table layout for individuals/groups with tickets. We cannot accept anyone who turns up on the night.***

You will:

  • Hear a brief introduction to sake and craft chocolate
  • Hear about small-scale producers of sake and chocolate, the challenges they face and why what they make is different from the mass market
  • Talk about – and taste! – flavour profiles from different origins for chocolate and different processing and brewing methods for sake
  • Have fun in a small, friendly group with plenty of time to explore, discover and ask questions.

To prepare:

  • Eat a meal before the tasting. (You’re welcome to taste and spit as well, but so far no-one has!) You will have four samples of around 30 ml sake, strength up to 16% abv.
  • On the day of the tasting, avoid any using products with strong smells such as perfume, cologne or strongly scented hair/body products as they can affect your sense of smell. (And the sense of smell of those around you.)
  • Also avoid strong tastes such as tobacco, coffee or spices just before the tasting as they can affect your ability to taste.
  • Other than that, just bring yourself and any questions you have about craft chocolate or sake!
