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 six samples of sake, strength up to 20% 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 ageing sake!
