Sake Decoding the Grades

The sake boom is here, and suddenly everyone has a developed thirst for this superlative brew.
But for newcomers, the dizzying array of labels on the market, and the baffling terminology mean that sake can be intimidating to approach.
One of the easiest ways to navigate the options is to become familiar with grades sake is divided into.

This month at Bar Zingaro we will decode the classifications of premium sake, the variances in their production, rice milling rates, fragrances and flavour profiles. Getting to grips with these basics will not only give you more confidence, it will take some of the guess-work out of ordering.

Come and indulge your inner sake geek with Rebekah Wilson-Lye, a SEC certified Advanced Sake Professional, as she gives an introduction to the sake grades, along with a guided tasting of sake from 7 innovative breweries.
