On Saturday 18 January The Shop at Japan House London hosts a free Kubota sake tasting session presented by Tazaki Foods and Asahi Shuzo. Attended by representatives from Asahi Shuzo, the session offers guests an opportunity to sample two of their Kubota branded sake: Kubota Koju junmai ginjo and Kubota junmai daiginjo.
This event is free to attend, and guests must be over 18 years old to participate in sake tastings.
Kubota Koju is from north western Niigata Prefecture, where a high annual snowfall produces clear, pure water ideal for making top-quality sake. This junmai ginjo style sake is transparent and has refreshing acidity with a touch of toffee-like finish. Similarly, Kubota junmai daiginjo is also from Niigata Prefecture and has a floral aroma reminiscent of pear and melon and the delicate balance of sweetness and sourness. Find out more about the Kubota branded sake range here.

About Asahi Shuzo
Kubota Koju and Kubota junmai daiginjo are part of the Kubota branded sake range produced by Asahi Shuzo brewery. Their Kubota range is brewed in Koshiji, a small village surrounded by rice paddies and woodland in Niigata Prefecture. The brewery prides itself on using gohyakumangoku, Niigata's finest quality rice. The labels for each bottle of Kubota are printed on specially-selected washi, Japanese paper, which is soft to the touch and creates a warm connection between the bottle and consumer. The Kubota range is noted for its clean, crisp taste and dry finish.
