WSET to Host Sake Seminar in London from January 28 - Japan's MAFF Partners with World-Renowned Wine Education Provider

LONDON and TOKYO, Jan. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With the cooperation of the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF), the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) will host seminars on sake for restaurant and wine industry professionals in London from January 28 to January 31, 2014. WSET-certified instructors will teach at the seminar. Hosted by Japan's National Research Institute of Brewing and a number of kuramoto, or sake brewers, the instructors have received a specialized training session in Japan to learn about the sake brewing process, ingredients, history, culture, legal regulations and tasting technique.

The WSET will launch a new sake course as part of its regular education program later this year. These initiatives are supported by the MAFF, which is currently working to increase the number of "sake evangelists" who will promote the traditional Japanese drink abroad. By providing formal education opportunities for industry professionals through the world's most influential wine education organization, the MAFF hopes to increase awareness of sake and expand its market overseas.
