Dave Hall from the Larder House/Library of Liquor took us through a very interesting evening tasting different Japanese sake and learning about its background and the part that milling process plays.
7 sake were on offer and a couple of them had a little extra treatment to make them traditional and memorable, although for some it was a bit too much, ha ha. You shall see.
All dressed up in Akashi Tai aprons Dave and Salvatore were ready to get the evening rolling, as opposed to getting down to some deep and dirty sumo wrestling. Dave began by giving some background to the brewing process and how sake is more akin to beer than wine. Many of the sake makers are small scale, and the product can be totally encompassing for the people working there, sleeping and waking to turn the rice over and so on on a regular basis. Amazing.
