Sake Regionality

To celebrate Kampai Toronto, an annual sake festival that usually takes place every spring, the Sake Institute of Ontario (SIO) is pleased to offer an exclusive mixed case exploring sake’s regionality. These six exceptional sakes, including a few new-to-market releases, are crafted by some of Japan’s most esteemed breweries and our local Ontario Spring Water Sake Co. The price for this Mixed Sake case is $278 + delivery. In solidarity with one of SIO’s main cultural partners, a donation of $15 will be presented to the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre with the purchase of each mixed case to help the Center maintain its valued services during the Covid-19 disruption.

While you wait for your Spirit of Kampai Mixed Sake Case to arrive, please join us for a special Webinar. On Thursday, June 18 at 7:30pm EST Sake Samurai Michael Tremblay and a panel of sake experts will lead you through an immersive experience into sake’s regional history, trends, and ingredients. Registration for the webinar is free and available here.
