Most sake distributors have sake tastings for the “industry” in Trade Show formats. If you have a great relationship with us, a wine shop, or a sushi or fusion restaurant that features good sakes then ask the owners if you could attend as a member of their team. It’s worth a try, and at the very least they can say that they don’t have enough tix. But if they do, go and taste sake like a professional and act that way too!
