In this week's episode of Sake Unplugged, Cindy and Giulia are welcoming another international guest to the show, Oh Reuben Luke, the Young Sake Ambassador of the Year!
Our hosts met Reuben while he was touring Japan a few months ago visiting sake breweries. While Giulia got a chance to catch up with him at a sake tasting in Tokyo, Cindy spent a weekend brewing sake with him at Miyoshikiku Brewery in Shikoku (followed by more sake tastings in Kyoto) and they both loved his passion and incredible knowledge of sake. Being a Singapore-based sake enthusiast, Reuben has, as expected plenty of sake certifications under his belt and although he had a taste for sake early on, chance brought him to sake and it has since taken over his life. These days he is a sake importer, managing partner at Kabuki Works importing craft sake, and working on other sake-related projects promoting sake and the people involved with it. He is also a big history geek as you will find out in this episode of Sake Unplugged and if you want to know a bit more about what he is up to aside from working in the sake industry you can follow him on Instagram, spoiler alert there is still a lot of sake... This is a weekly podcast so make sure to subscribe and tune in every Thursday and follow Sake Unplugged on Instagram and Facebook for updates and shenanigans, or if you are looking for additional information visit www.sakeunplugged.com
The next episode will be aired on the 30th of June and will be about a summer sake we mentioned in a previous episode - Ice Breaker from Kinoshita Syuzou in Kyoto. An incredibly popular sake (and not just in Japan!), so if you can, make sure to sip along for this sake review.
Until then, have a nice sake!
