New Premium and Rare sakes from the Noguchi Naohiko Sake Institute

With the British Sake Association

VERY limited tickets available, book ASAP if you want to join us!

To book: email events@britishsakeassociation.org

The Institute’s toji is legendary Master Brewer Noguchi Naohiko, who has been making sake for 73 years and is known as “the God of sake brewing”. The brewery was established in 2017 to help pass on Noguchi-Toji’s skill, spirit and sake philosophy to a new generation of brewers. Noguchi-Toji’s style is for richer, full-bodied brews: he specialises in nama-jukusei (intentionally aged unpasteurised sake), often coupled with the yamahai brewing technique.

This event will be a fabulous chance to enjoy these premium, rare sakes with a gourmet menu prepared by Chef Issa Cissokho at Putney Pantry.  Chef Issa has over 20 years of experience working in top kitchens in the UK and Europe, including the Fat Duck, and was sous chef for Anthony Worral Thompson.
