Sake Manila 2024: A Celebration of Japanese Culture and Craftsmanship

Sake Manila, a celebration and showcase of Japan’s rich culture, tradition, and craftsmanship, recently took center stage on the 24th of May at the Grand Ballroom of Okada Manila. 

The grand occasion featured an impressive lineup of over 200 premium sakes from more than 40 esteemed breweries and distilleries, and attendees were able to experience the world of authentic Japanese rice wine like never before.

Further enhancing the rich experience were endless gourmet food pairings designed by Okada’s own renowned chefs, headed by Chef Josef Tueschler, coupled with an array of Japanese whiskies, shochus, wines, gins, beers, and more.

Guests were also given the opportunity to connect personally with the artisans, brewers and luminaries behind the beverages, all of which were more than eager to share their unique stories of heritage and deep-rooted traditions infused in every bottle.
