The Foreign Correspondent’s Club of Japan is hosting a all-shochu themed event this Friday night.
Come taste and learn what makes Kyushu the shochu capital of Japan, with talks by shochu scholar Prof. Koichi Sakaguchi of Kyushu University, and Christopher Pellegrini, author of ‘The Shochu Handbook.’
You’ll get to sample 12 varieties of shochu from Kyushu’s premiere distilleries, including Munemasa Shuzo (Saga), Beniotome Shuzo (Fukuoka), and Takahashi Shuzou (Kumamoto)—and personally meet the makers. Plus blind tastings, quizzes, prizes and more makes for a great night!
To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
