Seminar Speaker: Jessica Joly

Jessica is America’s first “Miss Sake USA 2016” and also an International Kikisake-Shi (Sake Sommelier) WSET Level 3.

She regularly hosts her own popular sake event in NY, a quirky experience she created to make sake more accessible for the US audience. She features select sakes paired with seasonal dishes, and explains these bottles through a corresponding soul music track for a true “east meets west” evening.

Her mission? To share sake, of course. “As the first Miss Sake USA, I look forward to bridging the gap between Japan and America while simultaneously spreading my passion and love for sake to the world. I hope to successfully educate those outside of Japan on the true craftsmanship of sake and share the joy of discovering this world of deeper flavors.”

Don't miss this rare opportunity to try such a variety of sakes firsthand and have all your questions answered!

*Registration required and all attendees must be 21 years of age or older to sample alcohol.

This event is intended for members of the Food & Beverage Industry and Media and is not open to the public.
