Festival Of Sake


The Oak Barrel is proud to announce our first ever Festival Of Sake, which will take place Saturday 14 April.

An afternoon celebrating the drinks and delicacies of the island nation, there’ll be a strong Japanese atmosphere in our Sydney CBD store.

The Festival of Sake will focus on Japan’s national drink: sake. Sake is a completely unique product in the world of alcohol thanks to its unique production method and an incredible range of flavours. We are out to prove how amazing sake can be and just how varied the drink can be from brewery-to-brewery.

If you’ve dipped your toes in the world of sake, perhaps at a restaurant, or in passing at a bar, the Festival Of Sake is your opportunity to experience what small batch, craft producers have been capable of for hundreds of years.

Japan’s national drink will be our focus, but we have not forgotten about the many other types of beverages Japan produces and loves. Japanese wine – both traditional and skin contact ‘new world’ – will be present alongside 15th century spirit awamori, oft-misunderstood distilled spirit shochu and sake spin-offs yuzushu and umeshu.

To top it off, we will also have a food matching area which will pair an exceptional sake with Japanese finger foods, including fresh sushi.

Join us in celebrating a slice of Japanese culture at The Oak Barrel this April.
