Hakkaisan Tasting

A terrific event is coming up in a couple of days that I highly recommend you attend.

Timothy Sullivan of UrbanSake.com will be in Vancouver at Minami co-hosting a Hakkaisan sake tasting with Miki Ellis, the restaurant’s resident sake expert.

Sullivan is based in New York and is one of a few that have been deemed ‘Sake Samurais’ in Japan for their tireless efforts to promote and educate the public about nihonshu. He is also brand ambassador for Hakkaisan and this will be his first visit to our fine city.

Hakkaisan, from Niigata Prefecture, is an extremely popular premium sake brewery in Japan. Their sake is smooth like water. It’s dangerous sake because it’s so darn easy to drink! You’ll get to taste their entire lineup of sakes–a first in BC.

Wednesday, June 5th, 2013, 5pm-7pm
Minami Japanese Restaurant
1118 Mainland St (Yaletown)

$39 includes sake, delicious accompaniments from Minami’s award-winning chefs, tax and gratuity.
