The Taste of Sake

We all know saké as the great Japanese alcoholic beverage made from rice, but very few know how to appreciate it. Last year we introduced this 'saké experience' to show (and let you taste) how wide a variety of saké's there are. Because it was so successful, we decided to repeat the experience with a dozen new saké's and again a lot of useful information.

To enter you will have to buy a separate Saké ticket for € 15. This tickets covers all consumptions that are part of this tasting event. Tickets can be bought in advance at the Registration Desk or at the door (if any are left).

After the saké tasting you'll be able to purchase some of the bottles you just tasted.

PLEASE NOTE: You can NOT partake in both the Saké and Whisky Tasting.
