Anniversary Sale

Gins from Japan are all the rage at the moment, within the country and abroad. We've lined up a stellar collection of some special gins and are so excited to announce our second Zoom cocktail event, Summer of Japanese Gin, with our great friend Chris Lane, bartender extraordinaire and Spirits Specialist for Skurnik Wines West.

After 10+ plus behind the stick at bars and restaurants all over the Bay Area, Lane spent five years as bar manager at Oakland's Ramen Shop. So he knows a thing or two about how to incorporate Japanese spirits into cocktails.

He's chosen Ki No Bi Kyoto Dry Gin and Komasa Sakurajima Komikan Gin to make two cocktails during the event. So buy the Japanese Gin Packline up all the ingredients, and get ready for Lane to take us on a wild Zoom ride with Japanese gin!

The Summer of Japanese Gin event is free entry for Sake + Shochu Gumi members and customers who purchase the Japanese Gin Pack or any Japanese gin from June 21-July 14 RSVP at sake@umamimart.com and we will send you Zoom info!
