One year has passed since we last met in person. What an unbelievably challenging time we had, and I hope we are all near the end of the tunnel. Spring is not far away. Sake business in the UK suffered tremendously and sake export from Japan shrunk over 40 % in 2020 mostly due to the closure of restaurants. However, the silver lining is that online sake sites are being developed and people can now buy sake online and enjoy at home. Please refer to ‘where to buy sake’ list on our website to find your favourite sake. Sake Samurai UK will also provide the lists of future sake events voluntarily so that you can stay in touch with the circle of sake. Please let us know if you are planning any for the future. Meanwhile, here are some reports on the recent sake events in London.
