I invite you to demolish myths and learn from Asian culture to taste the most delicate fermented rice, "nihonshu" or "seishu" known in the western by the name "sake". We will delve into the world of this millenary drink produced from rice grains. In a comparative and progressive tasting with adequate setting, you will learn to differentiate nuances between nihonshus and learn about styles, categories serving temperatures and flavor profiles. You will taste different kinds of seishus in an ample tasting room at the appropriate temperatures and serving styles.
