Advanced Sake Sommelier


The Advanced Sake Sommelier course takes place in Japan.

We offer a unique insider’s view of Japan by visiting carefully handpicked sake breweries in stunning suburban villages and beautiful traditional cities. You will be able to see and experience authentic sake making processes under the guidance of the tōji (master brewer).

This course allows you to learn about the magnificent drink in depth and to discover places that aren’t in your ordinary guidebook. Enjoy the incredible country as a sake professional and culinary tourist at the same time – this tour promises to bring you a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

Our group is limited to a small number of people in order to ensure an intimate and interactive setting.

  • Unique first-hand experience of sake making with tōji
  • Visits to carefully-selected breweries in various parts of Japan
  • Special lectures by Japanese sake experts
  • Special sake evenings with brewers and specialists
