Following on from the success of our first Social in March, the BSA Committee once again invites you to sip sake in conversation with your fellow Members. Our theme for this event will be the hugely varied category that is junmai-shu.
From full-bodied, spicy, umami-rich styles, to smoother, fruitier examples, we’ll discover together what makes the junmai-shu category tick. With each member bringing their chosen bottle, we will have a chance to share our stories and impressions of the selected sakes, while tasting widely from examples drawn from across the category.
Included in their ticket price, Members can expect a fantastic spread of charcuterie and fromagerie, artisanal flatbread pizzas, and Vagabond’s signature steak sharing platters to enjoy alongside all of the sake brought by the attendees. Arguably one of the most food-friendly sake categories, we’ll discover how our selected junmai-shu work alongside this umami-rich menu.
Tickets are £25 per person, to be paid via paypal invoice sent after confirmation of your booking via email. Attending Members will each bring one bottle of junmai-shu of their choosing to the event – at the time of booking we request members to suggest two potential sake options they can bring, so that a suitable selection can be made by the BSA Committee beforehand. Food and glassware will be provided.
