November 1st is the Japanese Shochu Day, so on November 19th we will organize a special Shochu Dinner event in the "MUGI" restaurant in Warsaw.
Do you know what shochu is?
In recent years, sake has become more and more popular in Poland, but few people have had the opportunity to try shochu or know a lot about it.
Shochu, next to sake, is one of the most popular alcoholic beverages in Japan.
Surprisingly, shochu is eaten more in Japan than sake.
Shochu is the most popular Japanese distilled spirit.
It is made from a variety of ingredients, mainly rice, barley, sweet potatoes and brown sugar.
In Japan, shochu is drunk in various ways, such as with spices, water or tea.
Shochu goes very well with food and is a kind of alcohol to be enjoyed freely in Japan, especially in izakaya (Japanese-style pubs).
During this event, Mr. Sakamoto, owner of HIKO SAKE and SAKAMOTO-YA, will share the charms of shochu, including traditional ways of enjoying shochu and new ways of drinking shochu.
In addition, the restaurant "MUGI" will prepare special dishes that go well with shochu.
We hope you will take this opportunity to enjoy premium shochu and its accompanying dishes.
