Noguchi Naohiko Sake Institute Dinner
Presented by Tengu Sake

May 27 @ 18:30 21:00

British Sake Association is delighted to announce its next event: a dinner featuring the incredible sake of the Noguchi Naohiko Sake Institute.

Noguchi Naohiko Sake Institute Dinner

The Institute’s toji is legendary Master Brewer Noguchi Naohiko, who has been making sake for 73 years and is known as “the God of sake brewing”. The brewery was established in 2017 to help pass on Noguchi-Toji’s skill, spirit and sake philosophy to a new generation of brewers. Noguchi-Toji’s style is for richer, full-bodied brews: he specialises in nama-jukusei (intentionally aged unpasteurised sake), often coupled with the yamahai brewing technique. Oliver Hilton-Johnson of Tengu Sake is the exclusive UK importer for the Noguchi Institute’s sake, and will join us on the night to introduce these special bottles.

This event will be a fabulous chance to enjoy these premium, rare sakes with a gourmet menu prepared by Chef Issa Cissokho at Putney Pantry.  Chef Issa has over 20 years of experience working in top kitchens in the UK and Europe, including the Fat Duck, and was sous chef for Anthony Worral Thompson.
