Sake Tasting with Koji Aoto - Seated Tasting
We are excited to welcome Certified Sake Master Koji Aoto to the shop!
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.”
