Sake Tasting with Koji Aoto
We are excited to welcome Certified Sake Master Koji Aoto to the shop for the first time!
A long time resident of Atlanta, Georgia, Koji Aoto was born in Tottori Prefecture in west Japan. Over the course of his career Koji has traveled back to his home country to study with and learn from many of the best sake breweries in Japan – where he obtained the prestigious certification of a Sake Expert, one of a handful existing outside of Japan.
Koji single-handedly revolutionized and continues to improve sake distribution in Georgia by making a variety of premium Japanese sake available to a wide range of people, from the novice who wants to try new things, to those who fell in love with this “water from heaven.”

Artisan Cheese Tasting
Join us to welcome Tim Gaddis from In Demand Cheese!
Tim Gaddis started In Demand Cheese in 2017 and has been in the cheese and specialty food industry since 2003. He began his cheese career at Murray’s Cheese in New York City while attending The French Culinary Institute. It was at Murray’s that Tim fell in love with artisan cheeses. He then took over the cheese counter at Star Provisions in Atlanta, GA, and managed the cheese counter and the Bacchanalia cheese board until 2014.
During his 14 years in the industry, Tim has developed close relationships with many cheese producers and buyers around the country. It became apparent that many of the best artisan cheesemakers in the U.S. did not have the resources to pay a full-time sales representative nor did they have the time to go out and sell their products themselves. It was with this realization that In Demand Cheese was born.
Come in and sample some of our favorite cheeses Saturday, March 2 from 12pm-2pm!
No reservations required!
**IMPORTANT PARKING NOTIFICATION**
