You hold the prestigious title of Sake Samurai - one of only 3 in Australia - what made you fall in love with Sake?
Sake can go back to more than 2000 years in Japan. Sake is a part of our life and Sake industry has their own tradition.
We, Deja vu Sake Company represents 12 Sake brands and the oldest brewery has more than 515 year history. And all brewery is owned by ‘family’. We work with those families who aim to continue their family business. It is not easy now as things changes so much, but they are so determined. I like that element and I like to see ourselves is a part of those family.
There are so much different style, story, regionality, different rice, climate, water, yeast, regionality, Sake making philosophy etc etc. When you taste Sake knowing those stories behind make me to appreciate more and joyful experiences.
