Dear international sake brewers,
"Sake" has already become an international common term with the recent rapid growth of Japanese dietary culture all around the world. The Sake World Cup Committee was founded in 2018 with a strong wish to serve as a bridge between international sake makers and the Japanese sake world. We held the first Sake World Cup in June 2018 and we introduced 10 international sake breweries and their sakes in Kyoto. We are committed to growing this intercultural event further in the future and we are excited to announce that Tokyo is added as a venue from this year.
Today we are pleased to have this opportunity to invite you to be part of this international sake event in 2019.
[What is Sake World Cup?]
Sake World Cup is a unique tasting event where internationally made sakes are introduced in Japan every year to raise awareness of the growing sake culture all over the world. Sake lovers enjoy sakes made outside Japan and appreciate the stories behind the products. This year will be even larger than last year and we are sure that we will continue to grow as international sake making grows.
＊Giving opportunities for international sake makers to be exposed and connect with Japanese sake lovers and breweries
＊Raising domestic awareness of the growing international sake culture in order to stimulate the Japanese sake market
