Nihonshu (sake) brewery tour
Nihonshu, commonly known in the English-speaking world as sake, is a time-honored hallmark of Japanese liquor. Made with rice and water by master brewers called toji, sake is an embodiment of the producing region’s history and culture, land and climate.
Brewery tours offer a lesson in the history of sake and traditional brewing methods in spaces filled with a mellow aroma. At the end of a round of surprise and excitement, each brewery serves its prided sake along with an explanation on how to enjoy it—the differences in flavor and aroma according to brewing method, when to enjoy sake chilled (hiya) or warmed (kan), and foods that complement sake.
