The Fine Sake Awards Japan

The Fine Sake Awards Japan, inaugurated in 2011, has become one of the biggest sake competitions in Japan with about 200 breweries nationwide handing in some 300 items in total.

This tasting competition is supported by specialists who recognized the advantage of sake in a wineglass and joined hands to promote the popularity of sake and its culture not to mention spreading the new wonders of sake.

We are very proud that sake brewed in California, USA, has won one of the largest sake competitions in Japan.

The award ceremony was held on June 4th in Tokyo, Japan.
