RITA Sake Tasting: From Tokyo to New York


Event Overview

The tasting will feature four different sake from the RITA brand of Toshimaya. Each sake is unique to the brewer and most of them have not yet been sold in the United States market (so it’s a rare chance to try them here!) The president of Toshimaya Corporation will make a special visit from Japan and provide a presentation on each unique sake. During the event, we’ll also hold a “blind tasting” game in which participants will get to guess which particular sake they’re tasting. Lastly, the tasting will be paired with snacks served by a professional Japanese chef to enhance the taste of the sake.

About the Brewer


Toshimaya is a Japanese sake brewer that engulfs the ancient “Edo” culture with the pristine waters of Mt. Fuji and the glorious lands of Tokyo. The company has a history of 420 years and is said to be the first brewer to open what is now known as the typical Japanese pub, the “Izakaya.” Toshimaya uses the water lying beneath the soil of Mt. Fuji and creates sake in Tokyo, one of the largest financial cities. Now, Toshimaya will take a special visit to New York with their popular high-quality sake named “RITA.” Breaking down the traditional meaning of RITA, “RI (利)” stands for “benefits” and “TA (他)” stands for “others” which highlights what the sake is really about. RITA brings out the taste of any cuisine and creates a joyful eating atmosphere.
