This year’s Premium Sake Tasting Night is going to be better than ever. It will take place on Saturday, October 12, starting at 7:00 p.m. at the Coast Coal Harbour Hotel at 1180 West Hastings Street in beautiful downtown Vancouver. All of the major sake distributors in B.C. will be participating and showcasing their best sakes. In addition, nine outstanding restaurants and food distributors will also be providing tasty appetizers to accompany the premium sakes. This is the 12th annual version of this ‘not to be missed’ event. There will also be an exclusive Silent Auction and a live auction of unique sake bottles which are not available locally. The Sake Tasting Night tickets sell-out every year and so don’t delay. Early bird tickets are $65 per person until midnight, Friday, September 13. After September 13, regular tickets will be $75 per person until 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 10. Entrance is by advance ticket purchase only–no tickets will be available at the door.

Again this year, we will also be hosting a special VIP Dinner the Friday night before the Sake Tasting Night (Oct. 11, starting at 6:00 p.m.). Our VIP guests will be served a gourmet dinner especially prepared by the executive chefs at the Coast Coal Harbour Hotel paired with some of the finest sakes available. Sake Brewmasters are also expected to be in attendance to provide detailed professional advice and information on the sakes being presented. This is your chance to learn about sake from the experts. In addition to the dinner, our VIP guests will also receive a ticket for the Sake Tasting Night on the Saturday to fully round out their sake tasting experience. Please reserve your tickets early as we expect this unique experience will sell out quickly. Early bird tickets sell at $240.00 per person until midnight, Friday, September 13. Regular tickets will be $250.00. Full tables of 8 are also available at a special early bird price of $1,880.00 per table (a $15 per person savings over the regular individual ticket price) until Friday, September 13. Don’t wait.
