Although sake is commonly considered the traditional rice “wine” of Japan, the fermentation process used to produce it more closely resembles beer production. Want to know more? Plus taste some of the best sake Japan produces? On Thursday, June 6, join MOTAC in welcoming Hiro Sake's Vanessa Kieffer to The Edison for a complimentary tasting of Hiro's entire line of super-premium Japanese sakes: junmai tokubetsu, junmai ginjo, and junmai daiginjo.

Hiro Sake is a world-class, hand-crafted Japanese Sake, created using Japanese expertise with an uncompromising approach to quality. The golden rice fields, together with water from the subterranean river beds skirting the Miomote River in Murakami, Niigata prefecture, are the perfect setting for brewing our super-premium Japanese Sake. OurToji,or Sake Master, has created an exquisite brew that bridges the heritage of the past with today’s modern drinking patterns.
