KANPAI - London Craft Sake

The UK's first sake brewery

Crafting a modern London style using traditional Japanese techniques.

Small batch | High quality | Sulphite-free | Gluten-free | Preservative-free | Vegan

Driven by curiosity

As huge advocates of the craft beer and craft spirit approach, we've been inspired to experiment with our sakes. That's why with each batch we make, we mix up one ingredient - be it the type of rice we use, the type of koji or the yeast. It's amazing the variety of flavours and notes you can get from tweaking one little thing. We want you to be able to explore a huge variety of fresh sakes, and we're always keen to hear your favourites so we can go back and repeat. Because, once our small batches are gone, they're gone!
