Sake shops in Switzerland

As groups of 5 or more people are currently (April 2020) prohibited under Swiss federal anti-coronavirus measures, Discover Sake workshops and tastings are on hold until at least June 2020.

I will resume as soon as possible under Federal guidelines, and as soon as the MAME cafe where the events are held is open again and able to host them.

If you want to carry on exploring the wide and wonderful world of sake in the meantime, here are Swiss shops where you can order some! If you have any questions about what to order or anything else, please get in touch! I’d be happy to talk you through the choices available.
