Sydney Saké fans are in for an incredible treat as Black Market Sake who’s saké portfolio can be found in Australia’s best bars and restaurants; and in collaboration with Newtown’s favourite bottleshop P&V, will be hosting a not to be missed FREE tasting hosted by the saké makers themselves.
All 3 saké makers have a deep dedication for their craft with Mukai Shuzo’s, Kuniko Mukai pushing the boundaries of a traditional flavour with experimental heirloom rice varieties (the red rice saké is incredible; almost like a rosé wine).
Moriki Shuzo’s, Rumiko Moriki (who including Kuniko san is one of only a handful of female toji in the world) alongside her husband Hideki Moriki will also be pouring a range unique saké made using incredibly difficult methods, they still use a “wood fired boiler to steam the rice, and wooden vats full of steamed rice are carried on Moriki’s and their workers shoulders”.
Osaka’s tiny Akishika Shuzo headed by owner and toji, Hiroaki Oku has gained cult like status throughout Japan for their incredibly complex and well structures saké. They are to this day one of only a few saké producers who follow the cháteau concept with all of their rice being grown by select local farmers as well as 25% grown directly by the brewery.
A free tasting, hosted by some of the world’s most exciting saké producers is almost unheard of so you can be sure we will be getting their early.
