IWC and Kura Master awards

Founded in 1984, the International Wine Challenge (IWC) is one of the world's most prestigious blind tasting boards. The SAKE division since its inception in 2007 has seen remarkable growth in both sales and reputations of the award-winning sake producers.

In 2017, Kura Master was established in Paris with a focus on the French market. The judging panel comprises mostly French personnel, including a master craftsman of France, as well as sommeliers and barmen hailing from the top hotels and restaurants of the country.
