The Sake Samurai Association was established in 2004 as a junior council for the Japan Sake Brewers Association to protect sake and Japanese traditions at home and to promote them internationally. It has contributed to the increased popularity of sake and Japanese food overseas in recent years. Since 2006 Sake Samurai has awarded annual ‘Samurai’ titles to individuals for their outstanding contribution to the understanding, appreciation or promotion of sake.

Sake Samurai commit to the upholding of three tenets:
– Love both sake and the beautiful culture of Japan.
– Strive to gain a deeper understanding of sake culture and work on behalf of its further development.
– Spread the word about Japanese sake around the world with pride and passion.
