Kodawari Sake

Kodawari Sake 5.0 (6)

Sandra Gwee is an SSA Certified Sake Educator and Sommelier recognised by the Sake Education Council and Sake Sommelier Association.

​Upon receiving her Certification Sake, Sommelier Association approached her with a golden opportunity. The opportunity to open up a Franchise of Japanese Sake Education within Australia.

Although isolated from the world, Perth is still a prosperous country with the potential to experience the Sake world. With this challenge alone and support of the Sake philosophy as her armour to capture locals' hearts in Perth was Sandra's dedicated mission to educate and spread the love and passion to the rest of Australia.​

The Sake Philosophy has allowed Sandra to grow and adapt since her first experience traveling to Japan in ​2017, where Sandra was approached by Sake Times, famous Japanese Media for Sake in Japan, for a personal interview on the very first trip to Japan. The article was focusing on the challenge of selling Sake in Australia and how Sandra took up that challenge through her events. You can read about the article here.

I went into this workshop looking for a basic understanding of how to identify sakes and what food to mix them with, but Sandra delivered so much more. In the lead up to the class, Sandra checked in to make sure I had got the delivery and had clear instructions about my preparation. The delivery came with a clear guidebook, as well, which was very handy. Sandra's teachings have given me the ability to select a sake to suit any meal, but has also given me the confidence to order and enjoy sake in Japan without worrying about any social faux pas.  + more

This was a wonderful mind opening class. I have never tried sake and really enjoyed the teacher taking us through different regions and types of sake. I was wonderfully awakened! Very kind teacher too! It was a very special experience. Bottles sent big enough for two.

Such an amazing experience! Sandra was so knowledgeable and fun, taking us through various sake and tasting notes. Shipping was also super fast and Sandra was brilliant at checking in ahead of the session so we had everything ready for a great night. Would highly recommend
