Sake Trends

We have noticed the demand for the import of Japanese Sake is changing:

As people become more aware of Japanese Sake (and Japan in general) they are seeking out new, exciting Sake to import.

This is reflected in orders from our clients for non-mass produced, Artisan Sake with brand traditional stories.

More recently we have seen a big increase in our IBC sake and private label sake as the demand for building your own brand Sake and the RTD market grows

To support our clients and increase your sales of Sake we have developed a range of marketing tools and Sake data sheets for customers, shelves, counters menus, etc.
