TALKS+ Shochu: Japan’s Best Kept Secret Tuesday, November 14, 6:30 PM at Japan Society

Join us at Japan Society for a talk & tasting of the unique Japanese spirit shochu on Tuesday, November 14th at Shochu: Japan’s Best Kept Secret.

Unlike sake, which is brewed, shochu is distilled and can be made from a variety of ingredients including barley, rice, and sweet potatoes. With such a wide range of tastes, there’s a shochu for everyone. Don’t know what kind you like? Shochu sommelier Stephen Lyman will give tips on what to try based on your preferences in other liquors like whiskey or rum, and reveal shochu’sfascinating history on the island of Kyushu. At the tasting reception, sample twenty different shochu varieties with some light snacks, and discover which is perfect for you!
