Five of the finest sakes at MASU by Nic Watt

A rare chance to taste one of the most sought-after and highly-regarded sakes is on offer at MASU by Nic Watt.

Sounding like something James Bond would sip, the ‘Tanaka 65’ is one of five rare sakes brought over from Japan to New Zealand by MASU, which is devoting the month of October to this very special wine.

Nic Watt says: “These are some of the greatest sakes available and we are proud to give MASU customers the opportunity to taste and enjoy them this spring.”

He says spring is a significant time of the year in Japanese culture, so MASU wanted to mark it with something special.

These are some of the greatest sakes available...

But trying the right sake the right way is vital to enjoying the experience.

And who better to advise than SKYCITY’s very own ‘Sake Samurai’, Beverage Consultant Sam Harrop?

“We have selected what we believe to be an incredible list of sakes that we are importing direct,” says Sam.

MASU’s move is the latest by Sam Harrop since joining SKYCITY last October as a Beverage Consultant. He’s collaborating with the teams at each SKYCITY outlet on transforming the range and diversity of beverage offerings at our dining destinations.
