Sake Appreciation: Intro To Sake Tasting


Complex, technical, intriguing and varied. These are words more often associated with precision engineering. However we’re using these words to describe sake, seishu or nihonshu.

The Oak Barrel will be running a series of evening tastings as an introduction to sake from how it is made, the various grades to how it is drunk and the complex world of styles.

Sake is different but highly enjoyable. One has to get an understanding of how it is made and what to look for, but once you get your head around it you will become totally engrossed in this beverage just as we have.

Join Paul Downie, a certified sake professional, for the first in the series Thursday 21 September and taste a range of styles and types.

In the sit-down tasting we’ll go through eight different varieties and styles, all of which are included in the ticket price. 

WHAT: Sake Appreciation: An intro to sake tasting
WHERE: The Oak Barrel, 152 Elizabeth St, Sydney 2000
WHEN: Thursday 21 September, 6.15pm for a 6.30pm start
PRICE: Members $20 / Non-Members $30
