Discovering something new from Japan doesn’t have to break the bank. Enter Level I of Sake Gumi and you will be rewarded with two 300ml (10oz) bottles. We will guide you through the basics like: Which sakes will taste best with a burger? or Why should I drink this cold? We will also throw in some bonus nuggets of information like: What is aged sake? or Why is my sake in a can? All with some hands-on materials (i.e. actual sake), of course.
Looking for something extra special? Check out our Level II Premium program.
