THE INNOVATORS VOL.2 | SAWAYA MATSUMOTO+TIRPSE “SPIRIT”

CATEGORY : EVENTS / POSTED ON 2017年4月4日

THE INNOVATORS is a series of exclusive dinner collaborations, which aims to elevate both sake and cuisine in Japan to the “The Next Level” and beyond.

With this aim in mind, JAPAN CRAFT SAKE COMPANY has set a challenge to Japan’s most celebrated chefs & master brewers: to create dynamic sake & food pairings that showcase sake’s compatibility with a diverse range of culinary styles.

These unique fine-dining experiences also challenge guests to re-think their perceptions of sake and see it in a new light: an artisan beverage of the same calibre and quality as the finest wines, with a rightful place in the Michelin-starred dining rooms of the world.

In the “Spirit” of collaboration, Tirpse’s owner/sommelier Naotaka Ohashi and 10th generation brewer, Hidehiko Matsumoto, created a dynamic sake & food pairing which celebrated their shared philosophy & vision for the future. Harmonizing seemingly opposing concepts of preserving tradition, while at the same time innovating to create new expressions & flavors are the foundations of both men’s craft.
