Kyushu Sake & Shochu Festival

Kyushu Sake & Shochu Festival

Special event
【10th – 22nd July 2017】
Japan has a long history of Buddhism and religious mythology: having derived many from other Asian cultures.
One popular belief is that there is a God in everything, and this even includes sake – a sacred drink of the Gods.

Until the 20th century, Kyushu was seen as Japan’s gateway to the world and a centre for trade. It has historically been the first stop for foreign traders and travellers to Japan and the place from where outside influences would spread to the rest of the country.Time has moved on, but the landscapes, legends and tradition of sake making remain to this day.

In collaboration with Sam Sake, Sway Gallery, through a series of events, will be celebrating “A Craft Sake & Shochu Festival” from Kyushu.
From 10th – 22nd July, Sway Gallery visitors will get the chance to learn, sample and purchase sake & shochu from highly acclaimed breweries from the Kyushu region.
