Sake Matsuri returns 5 November 2022

5 November, 2022 @ 11.00 am 6.00 pm

Sake Matsuri Singapore 2022 returns on 5 November after a successful run in June this year. More than 200 sakes will be showcased including competition-winning sake, seasonal releases and sake that has never been available in Singapore. Sample sake and purchase sake at attractive retail prices.

Sake highlights include:

  • Sohomare Ki.itsu 2016 Kimoto Junmai Daiginjo, available for the first time in Singapore. The Ki.itsu, aged at 5°C for five years, is brewed using the ancient kimoto method that is well-recognised in Japan, producing a more flavorful and incredibly well-balanced style of sake.
  • Matsumidori Brewery’s limited brew and award-winning Rokkon Diamond Junmai Daiginjo, of which only 900 bottles are made each year.
  • Concept Workers Selection, a collection of sake from various breweries that is curated to express the brewer’s passion and the local climate. The sake are created to appeal to the five senses, and place importance on the sensitivities of brewing, farming and designing.
  • Shichirobei Junmai Ginjo Yamadanishiki 2018BY, an atypical Junmai Gingo from Aomori which has the familiar Southeast Asian aroma of pandan and coconut, pairing well even with local favourites like Nasi Lemak!

Food from The Oyster Cart and The Kongsee will also be available. Get your tickets at S$55 per person or S$250 for a group of five from www.sakematsuri.sg. Ticket includes three hours of free-flow sampling and a Sake Matsuri tasting glass.
