Quick Introduction:

Based in Kyoto, Japan and under direct Agreement with the Sake breweries, SakePortal represents small Artisan Sake breweries to bring True Taste Sake to the world.

We have strict supplier criteria and we do not buy from mass producers; you can not find our Sake in supermarkets.

Through our relationships and by matching current global trends our aim is to offer you an advantage over your competitors and offer a smooth business flow for the import of Japanese Sake.


Our Inspiration


From the beautiful clear waters of Hokkaido to the delicately refined Sake rice, we are inspired by the Japanese
Artisan craft Sake breweries who stand by their traditional brewing methods to produce the perfect Sake.


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, interesting Sake to import that is in tune with global trends.

This is reflected in orders from our clients for non-mass produced Sake with brand traditional stories. They can offer special sales points, stand out from the competition and attract new consumers.

The Sake we export matches the current global trends and the Sake trend.

SakePortal enables you to fufill the growing global demand and increase sales of Sake.
