Hyogo hosts IWC 10th anniversary sake tasting
The Sake Samurai Association (SSA), longstanding partner of the International Wine Challenge (IWC), is happy to announce that this year’s world-largest sake competition will be hosted in Kobe, Hyogo Prefecture in May. This marks the ten year anniversary of one of the industry’s most well-respected competitions, in addition to one decade of partnership between the IWC and the Sake Samurai Association.
Between the 16th and 18th May 2016, a 54 strong panel of Japanese and non-Japanese Sake judges will blind taste over a thousand Sake entries across a broad range of different styles. Breweries will be entering their best Sakes with the hope of winning Gold, Silver or Bronze medals, IWC Sake Trophies and above all, winning the coveted status of Champion.
