I thought I’d post a photo from last weekend’s sake event, a fundraiser for Tonari Gumi‘s seniors programs. An annual event, it was up until a few years ago, the largest tasting of its kind in Canada, but since Toronto now has KampaiTO, it has been relegated to largest in Western Canada.
Additionally, the event included a big announcement for sake in BC. The Sake Association of British Columbia (SABC) has been officially formed–a consortium of sake importers, brewers, educators who are passionate about sharing their sake knowledge and encouraging the responsible enjoyment of sake in BC.
Big plans are in the works. Sake has turned a corner in BC. It’s finally happened! Stay tuned for more.
