Japan in a Glass
Often incorrectly referred to as rice wine, sake, ‘nihonshu’ in Japanese, is a symbol of the elegance and finesse that is so characteristic of Japanese culinary traditions. Discover the products carefully crafted by artisanal breweries over a wide range of styles, from fruity and elegant to intense and packed with umami. Sake is a natural product, and gracefully versatile in combination with a fine cuisine.discover
A quest for an accurate reflection of sunny and juicy fruit in a glass was the motivation for this small but fantastic selection of Japanese liquors. Typical Japanese fruit like Yuzu or Ume, the famous green plums of Kyushu, are at the base of this attractive series of sweet yet refreshing drinks. Perfect to discover summer in your glass throughout the entire year.discover
A first on the Belgian market! Shochu is a versatile and traditional Japanese spirit that can be nicely paired with fine cuisine, or that can be the base for creative cocktails. Aside from shochu, Kanpai proudly presents a unique Japanese gin produced on the island of Okinawa, worth discovering!discover
