Sake labels can be as aesthetically pleasing as they are frustrating to comprehend. The indecipherable names and classifications can make approaching a bottle of sake an intimidating experience, even for Japanese speakers. But fear not. By becoming familiar with some sake basics, as well as a few keywords, you will be able to take some of the guess work out of making your next sake selection.
This month at Bar Zingaro we will be decoding sake labels and learning how to use this information to predict the aromas and flavours inside. Join Rebekah Wilson-Lye for a presentation on “Sake: Decoding the Label” followed by a guided tasting of beautifully crafted sake from seven innovative breweries.
