Taste of Kikusui Sake Tasting Dinner

Taste of Kikusui = The Sake of Happiness =

“KIKUSUI Shuzo” is one of the finest breweries in Japan. They have been putting their efforts into discovering not only sensational sakes, but innovative new concepts as well. One such new concept is the development of a computer that pairs sake with its ideal food.

We are planning to bring a variety of Kikusui sakes (including the first USDA certified organic sake made in Japan) to pair with its perfectly matching food. We will be cooking with them as well.

Please join us in experiencing the bold and interesting new flavors!.

Kikusui Brewing

Kikusui Brewing firmly believes in contributing to a more affluent life through sake, by creating joy through its pursuit for better liquor.

[What is “quality Sake”?] Sincce its foundation in 1881(Meiji 14), Kikusui is continuing a theme of investigation. Raising the quality so that whenever one drinks the Sake, it’s always delicious. It is an important matter that there has been no changes now nor in the past and even in the future. Various things brim over in the market today, so people can be chosen freely. High-quality products are already a common thing in these days. Buying something is a part of means. The interest of the person is poured into how they can spend enjoyable and euphoric time through the products. Of course, Sake isn’t also an exception. Here, Kikusui stops and considers it once again. What is “quality sake” for the customer? What is “quality Sake ” for the seller? What is “quality Sake” for society? And what is “quality Sake” for producer? We will do our best in order to brew high-quality Sake and propose enjoyable life-style with Sake, and these are the solution to four questions. To make the Sake world interestiong and offer poeple the enjoyable time with Sake, this is the misson of Kikusui. (http://www.kikusui-sake.com/)
