Shōchū & Awamori: Drinks Tasting

焼酎と泡盛 試飲体験


Expand your Japanese drinks knowledge beyond sake by enjoying a free tasting from a range of Japanese alcoholic beverages and spirits at Japan House London from Wednesday 26 February to Sunday 1 March.

Guest can discover the diversity and versatility of Japanese alcoholic drinks including the country’s most popular domestic spirit shōchū, and awamori, a unique drink from Japan’s southernmost prefecture, Okinawa. They can also learn about the different ways these drinks can be enjoyed, whether neat, on the rocks, mixed with hot water (oyuwari), cold water (mizuwari) or paired with food.

Guests must be over 18 years old to participate in tastings of alcoholic drinks. Japan House London will operate a Challenge 25 policy during events so guests who look under 25 may be asked to show proof of age. Japan House London reserves the right to refuse to serve alcohol to guests.

Please drink responsibly. Visit drinkaware.co.uk for more information.

This event is organised in collaboration with Japan’s National Tax Agency (NTA) and the Kagoshima Shōchū Makers Association.
