Taking up the private dining space at Tanuki, get ready to say ‘itadakimasu’ and ‘kanpai’ and dive into a masterclass about Japan's national drink, tasting five different types of sake and learning the history behind it.

On the night, you will be tasting 5 sakes with the Tanuki team. Four sakes will be from Chiyomusubi sake brewery in Tottori, Japan, while the fifth drink will be an Umeshu plum liqueur. Sano-san from Chiyomusubi will be visiting from Japan to explain his sakes and umeshu. Four well-loved dishes, such as sashimi, will accompany the tasting flight, specially designed to match with the sake by the chefs at Tanuki for this special event.
