First Time Attending Singapore’s Sake Festival? Here’s What You Have to Know

This year, you can immerse yourself in an unforgettable journey of taste, culture, and celebration at the 2023 Sake Festival at the Suntec City Conventional Hall. There you can get to experience the pinnacle of indulgence as premium sakes, elegantly poured by the glass, are intertwined with 300 types of sake and over 35 diverse labels of Japanese breweries represented by their toji (master brewers), perfectly paired with regional snacks.

Offering a captivating insight into Japan’s rich heritage, participants of this year’s Sake Festival can join the sake and food pairing dinner hosted by the country’s leading sake expert, Chiba Marie, on June 15. This will come with an eight-course sake pairing at Shirokane Tori-Tama Singapore.

Elevating the culinary experience, the Sake Festival showcases an exquisite pairing of yakitori dishes meticulously curated by Marie. Indulge in the perfect harmony of flavors as these delectable culinary creations are thoughtfully accompanied by a selection of sakes, including Marie’s exclusive collaborative brew with Senkin Brewery from Tochigi Prefecture, a truly unique offering available solely at her bar, Eureka! in Tokyo—one of the 84 Sake Samurai in the world (a title given to people who promote the drink).

This exclusive experience is only open for 35 seats at a rate of S$220 per person. Entry to this year’s Sake Festival is S$60 per person. Meanwhile, the festival also makes for a groundbreaking experience as the world’s first one percent rice polished sake, Tatenokawa Junmai Daigonjo Komyo, is made available by the glass for the first time in history.

Other high-end ranges, like Dassai Beyond and Ohmine’s Storm Cowboy series, which were developed in collaboration with fashion brand Human Made, will also be served at S$10 to S$15 per glass.

Sake Festival Singapore began in 2013—and by far, has become the longest-running sake event. This is made possible by the Robertson Quay liquor store and bar, Orihara Shoten. The last edition of this festival was in 2019, pre-pandemic.

Whether you are an experienced sake enthusiast or just starting to explore the world of sake, the Sake Festival welcomes you to discover and taste a diverse selection of sakes from all around Japan. Come to Suntec City Convention Hall at Level 3, Summit Hall 1, on June 17 from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Don’t miss the opportunity to immerse yourself in the captivating world of sake, where flavors, traditions, and culinary delights come together in an unforgettable experience at the Sake Festival. Get your tickets here!
