Description

In collaboration with Gabrielle Morriseau, sake-sommelier and manager at Craft and Cru (Milton, MA), we aim to create a unique sake tasting experience that you will not forget!

We will guide you through different Niigata sakes carefully paired with a selection of light appetizers. Included in the tasting are some unique offerings not normally available in the U.S. Don’t miss out and sign up today as this event is limited!!
