of the Year website.


The Sake Sommelier of the Year competition is the first event of its kind held outside Japan.

Japanese sake has been enjoying a surge in popularity in the last decade and is now enjoyed the world over. Sake is celebrated and appreciated in the same vein as fine wine. The competition aims to find the world’s most skilful Sake Sommeliers. Organised by the Sake Sommelier Association, the Sake Sommelier of the Year platform provides the perfect opportunity for sommeliers to build their confidence and raise their profile in the industry.
