Curious about traditional Japanese rice wine? Wonder no more. Fumi's Sake Club is here to answer all your burning questions and solve modern drinking conundrums like whether you should be bombing it into a glass of lager, drinking it hot or cold, and if it should be treated like a beer, wine or spirit.

Following a string of sell-out events, Federal Street robata restaurant Masu is bringing back the educational drinking session on Saturday, 28 September. Fumi's Sake Club is led by New Zealand's only internationally certified sake educator, Fuminobu (Fumi) Nakatani.

The two-hour class (3–5.30pm) will open you up to a whole new world of sake. As well as being led through a variety of traditional sake by taste, sight and aroma, this extra special edition of Fumi's Sake Club will let guests sample Masu's own signature sake. The drop was brewed in Queenstown in collaboration with New Zealand's only sake brewery, Zenkuro.

The restaurant suggests that attendees will walk away feeling knowledgeable and confident about ordering sake. It includes accompanying small dishes from the Masu kitchen.
