Joto Saké Tasting & Food Pairing with Andrew Sowers & Chef Evan
on October 24th @ 6:30pm-8:30pm! *limited seating- Ticket Price: $75.00
”Joto” means “highest quality,” which is the guiding principle in everything we do. We want to act as a bridge between the Japanese sake world and the U.S. market. We carefully select all of our producers and all of their products. Although we are highly focused, we aim to cover the complete range of regions, types of sake, and styles. We also focus on breweries with unique stories, whether it be their history, technique, ingredients, or style.

More recently, he was the General Manager and Beverage Director of Shalom Japan in Brooklyn, a wildly delicious Jewish-Japanese fusion restaurant owned by married chefs, Aaron Israel & Sawako Okochi.
