Father's Day is June 16

Have you been hearing about shochu from your friends? From our emails? From going into the shop? Do you have experience drinking shochu either at our bar or in Japan but never took a deep dive before? Know the difference between shochu and soju??? 

Shochu is a deep world, so it can never help to have a guide, right? And who better than someone with some field hours and book-learnin' under their belt? This is a course taught by our own Umami Mart Co-Founder, Shochu Director, and Certified Shochu Advisor Kayoko Akabori. She'll go over the basics of shochu – all of the different styles and types, and how to best enjoy them.

Join us for this fun and educational program that demystifies this yet-to-be-discovered distilled beverage.
