Shizuoka Sake Tasting: Sanwa Brewery-Eikun Brewery-Tokubetsu Junmai Hiyaoroshi (conducted at La Sommeliere in Shizuoka City)


I don’t mind repeating it all the time but I prefer conducting sake tastings in the right environment but not many places are propitious for that exercise or willing to help.
But La Sommeliere in Miyuki Cho, Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City is certainly becoming a habit as not only I can conduct my tasting in the best conditions possible but also exchange views at the same time!


Another sake with a long name by Eikun Brewery!
