So here’s the thing: I find it hard to describe exactly what I do for a living… I just know all of them have something to do with alcohol: Professor, consultant, buyer, writer, and host. Rarely do they intersect.
The last one I hosted (and am writing about), The Art of Japanese Liquor, was one of those events when they did. No complaints here though… It was a fun gathering of like-minded (those who enjoy sake and shōchū, of course) individuals and is part of the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO)’s “Bringing You a Taste of Japan” campaign that seeks to promote Japanese culture, traditions, and products in the Philippine Market. The event was held in Sakagura (the same awesome people behind Nikkei), who coincidentally also won the Japanese Food Supporters (JFS) Certification.
