Sake tasting at the sushi restaurant sansaro in Munich

Sake Tasting

Sake is the Japanese equivalent of Western wine made from grapes: a fine, aromatic drink brewed only from rice. But while wine has about 200 to 300 aromas, a good sake beguiles the senses with up to 800 aromas.

In ancient Japan, sake was used as a ritual offering due to its purity and is therefore considered the "drink of the gods". Our premium sake are among the top 5% of Japanese sake production and are sourced from select artisan producers. 

Such sake is best enjoyed slightly chilled. In reality, good sake has little to do with the "hot rice liquor" that sake used to be known as in Germany. In order to introduce you to the special culture of high-quality Japanese sake, we regularly organize special events, sake tastings.
