According the latest reports. Sake Breweries are closing at a rate of XX per year. However, exports abroad are going UP! Internationally Sake is a well-respected, but not well understood premium beverage. SakeWiz strongly believes in maintaining and enhance the cultural history and experience that has enriched Japanese culture for centuries. This is why our service is free to the breweries and suppliers of this fine product. Almost all members of the SakeWiz management team are Kikisake-shi ( Sake Sommeliers ), who understand, appreciate and love and respect the culture and history that surrounds Sake.
