Overview of Kura Master

Kura Master is a prestigious sake competition held in France since 2017, specifically designed for the French audience. The judging panel is predominantly composed of French professionals from across Europe, including MOF holders who are certified as top craftsmen in France, renowned sommeliers, bartenders, and experts from first-class hotels, restaurants, and culinary schools. These judges are all professionals in the food and beverage industry.

Record Participation and Expanded Categories

In addition, since 2021, Kura Master has expanded to include a new contest for authentic shochu and awamori, with 193 brands participating in 2022.

Through competitions, tastings, and various events, Kura Master aims to create opportunities to explore and appreciate the harmonious pairing of food and beverages.
