Calling All Sake Lovers!


Continuing the tour of our London Piccadilly store, the Japan Centre is offering an experience that can only really be appreciated hands on! Throughout the month of October we’ve been offering the public the opportunity to try quality sake and shochu and the chance to discuss it with the manufacturers.

There are only three days left, so don’t miss out:

From 3pm:

Friday 31st October – Tenon Koshu (5 years) – This traditional sake has been aged for five years resulting in a mature, full-bodied flavour.
Saturday 1st November – Iichiko Barley – This shochu is distilled from barley rather than rice giving it a mild taste which is really easy to drink.
Sunday 2nd November – Chikurin Junmai – This junmai sake is made from rice, water and koji mold which produces a full, clean and dry flavour.

But don’t worry if you can’t make those dates! Drop by the Tea and Sake Shop anytime in the basement of the Japan Centre Piccadilly store (below the restaurant) for your free samples of sake and shochu. The friendly and knowledgeable staff are always on hand to answer any questions you may have!

The Tea and Sake Shop is open Mon-Sat 10:00 – 19:00 and Sun 11:00 – 19:00.
