You can see more about The Sake Sommelier Association and its work by visiting their website.
Sake is a growing segment of the alcoholic drinks market in the UK, and the availability of different breweries and styles has never been better. Capitalising on consumers looking for something a bit different, and with an eye to heritage and quality.
Increasingly, prestigious wine merchants and upmarket department stores like Selfridges, Harrods, Fortnum and Mason and Harvey Nichols are stocking an ever growing range. More than just Japanese restaurants are adding Sake to their lists as well.
The Sake Sommelier Association aim to promote the history, culture and traditions of this wonderful and diverse beverage around the world. They want to show that it can match the complexities of fine wines and spirits, yet is much more versatile with a wide range of cuisines from different cultures.
