The sake cocktail boom is here! ? “SAGA COCKTAIL BAR ~Cheers with Saga Sake Cocktails~” campaign will be held

In Saga Prefecture, with the aim of letting more people know about the appeal of Saga Sake, we are holding tie-ups with restaurants, drinking experience events, and suggesting pairings with food. We are promoting Saga sake.

In recent years, we have focused on the gradual increase in the popularity of “sake cocktails” as a new way to enjoy sake, and we have created “SAGA”, where you can enjoy cocktails based on Saga sake at restaurants in the prefecture.
COCKTAIL BAR” campaign will be held for two weeks only.
During the event, you can enjoy three types of Saga sake cocktails designed by Fukuoka-based bartender Ayano Yoshimoto.

In addition, the main visual for the campaign was created especially for this occasion by ABEchan, an illustrator from Saga Prefecture who has gained attention for his pop, new, yet nostalgic style. Those who do so will receive an original sticker with ABEchan’s illustration.

This is a campaign that can be enjoyed by a variety of people, such as an opportunity to drink sake for those who don’t usually drink sake, and a new way to drink sake for those who like sake.
