What you'll do

As we weave through the cobbled streets of Toronto's historic distillery district, we'll discuss how a simple mill evolved into the world's largest distillery. We'll stop in to taste some craft beer and pass by Toronto's only sake brewery where you can visit after the tour. Then we'll settle in at Boku where you'll learn all about the ingredients, styles, and brewing process of sake. Sample loads of premium Japanese sake and learn to identify the styles and flavors like a pro. During the tasting enjoy izakaya-style snacks like takoyaki, gyoza, and more. You'll go home with a strong taste of sake culture and history that you can share next time you are out for Japanese!
