During a trip to Japan, Ken Valvur became obsessed with unpasteurized sake. To him, it tasted magical. However, he couldn’t get it back home in Toronto (because it needs to be kept refrigerated, it’s prohibitively expensive to import). So, to slake his raw sake cravings, in 2010 Valvur founded Toronto’s first sake distiller. Tour the facility, try a variety of Junmai sakes, then finish at the bottle shop where you can browse the selection with a newfound appreciation for the Japanese liquor.
