Compare and Experience Tasting Fukui's Local Sake in Lacquered Glasses [Kubota Liquor Store]

Kubota Sake Store was established in 1914 and is your first stop for local Fukui sake in Sabae. The store also boasts a range of limited seasonal sakes such as the Born sake brewed in Sabae by Kato Kichibee Shoten and the Kuzuryu and Kokuryu sakes brewed by Kokuryu Sake Brewery in Eiheiji. The staff at Kubota are also happy to teach customers about food pairings, optimum temperature, and healthy ways to drink so that everybody can enjoy sake to the fullest. Sake helps people to grow closer and Japan's traditional sake culture is fiercely protected and passed on through the ages. The store owner and his wife are always pleased to greet new customers. Kubota Sake Store is also offering an original experience at the bar: the chance to compare regional sakes drunk from lacquered glasses. A chance to drink from special lacquered sake glasses created by famed Japanese glassware makers is rare, and you can experience Echizen lacquerware right here in Sabae. All regional sake included in the tasting experience were carefully selected by the owner of Kubota himself. Special lacquered sake glasses don't just look special; they also affect the taste of the sake when it enters the mouth. So why not try a sake tasting with a twist?
