Sake is thought to have originated in South East Asia. With evidence of fermented rice beverages arriving in Japan by the third century B.C. the drink has evolved and is now Japan's most famous alcoholic tipple.

The importance of sake (nihon shu) to the Japanese people is evident through the meticulous process by which it is made. Every aspect of sake brewing is designed to create an exceptionally pure and sophisticated drink which can be enjoyed hot or cold, with or without food.

Some of the best sake varieties in London can be found in our restaurants.
