Whether you’re an aspiring sake aficionado or have no idea what sake is, the Sake Master, Ayaka Ito, will lead you through the tasting with everything on hand from traditional sake to Asian-infused margaritas. The world of saké was introduced to her when she was working as a long-term volunteer in Miyagi prefecture after The Great Eastern Japan Earthquake.
