Tuesday, March 27 @ 6:30pm. Join Michael Tremblay, Ontario’s first certified Advanced Sake Professional (ASP), and celebrate Yamagata Sake.

Yamagata: Sake’s First Prefectural Geographical Indication In December 2016, Yamagata became the first prefecture in Japan to have its sake designated as a Geographical Indication (GI) by the World Trade Organization.

For decades leading up to this, Yamagata strived to perfect its sake and is now considered one of the most prized sake making regions in Japan. This Master Class will introduce the history, geography, ingredients and sake making in Yamagata, in addition to tasting sake from several of the prefecture’s most esteemed sake breweries.
