The Twenty-Second Spring Akita Sake Tasting Event
Celebrating 10th Anniversary of Akita Sake Club (ASC) & Fund Raiser for the Kumamoto & Kyushu Region Earthquake Relief Efforts
ASC was established in June 2006 to introduce sake, food and culture of Akita Prefecture to the sake lovers in the NYC area. This spring, ASC is proud to announce its 22nd event. At this tasting, we are also celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Akita Sake Club. In support of the recent earthquake victims in Kumamoto and Oita of the Kyushu-region, part of the proceeds will go to charity. We greatly appreciate all those that have come before and loved our events and look forward to seeing you again.Taste more than 45 of the finest sakes from Akita, Tohoku-region and other areas of Japan that we have selected especially for you.
Savour some of Akita’s delicacies such as “Cold Inaniwa Udon”, “Kamameshi”, “Akita-Miso Glazed Chicken”, “Iburigakko” and many more specialties from the region. We will also have live performances by pianist Mr. Richard Bennett and guitarist Mr. Masami Ishikawa.
We hope you will join us at this next tasting event. Reservations are required and as space is limited, we suggest you reserve your spot early. We provide plastic tasting cups but recommend you to bring your own glass cup for better tasting. There will be some local potters who will be selling hand made original sake cups too. Sake Sommelier, Ms. Chizuko Niikawa will be present to answer any questions regarding our sake tastings.
