Event details

Intermediate sake tasting

“We craft modern London-style sakes using traditional Japanese techniques. Kanpai is experimental at heart and ongoing exploration forms a huge part of our motivation to brew sake.”


Meaning “cheers” in Japanese, the name Kanpai reflects co-founders Tom and Lucy Wilson's belief that good sake deserves to be enjoyed amongst old friends and new. This belief inspired them to make sake history by launching the UK's first ever sake brewery, and Europe's first sake taproom.

At this masterclass, join Tom Wilson to take a closer look at this groundbreaking Peckham-based sake brewery.
