The Color of Sake in NY
The Color of Sake: The Clear Choice for the Evening of Tuesday, February 17
The Color of Sake: A Tasting of Clear Extravagance will be held at Astor Center in New York on Tuesday, February 17 from 6:30 to 9:00 pm. With something for enthusiasts and beginners alike, The Color of Sake will host 17 of Japan’s best sake brewers, representing different regions, brewing techniques and taste experiences. Guests will have the chance to sip, savor and learn about as many as 44 of the most sought-after and highly decorated sakes available to the U.S. market. While many of these sakes are available in New York, some brewers and sakes will be making their U.S. debut.
Tickets are $30 each and can be purchased at www.colorofsake.com. Admission also includes tasty bites chosen to complement the selection of sakes. For a limited time, those using promo code "SAKENY2015" will receive a $5 discount on each ticket.
There will also be a seminar from 7:00 to 7:30 for those interested in learning more about sake. Akiko Fujita, Senior Researcher at the National Research Institute of Brewing, will discuss the fundamentals of sake production and how it plays into your taste experience. Those interested in attending the seminar should choose the “Ticket + Seminar” option when purchasing tickets. Seating is limited, however, and this option will only be available while seats last.
