Speaker: Patrick Ellis

Patrick Ellis, Saké Samurai, will take us on an intimate journey into the deliciously mysterious world of Japan.

The main event will focus on the exclusive world of Premium Saké, diving deep into how and why Premium Saké is sweeping the wine world by storm.

We will also hike up the kimono just enough to peak into some interesting and practical tips on Japanese business and dining culture so you feel more at ease in any Japanese setting on either side of the ocean.

Born from an obsession for saké and a passion to share Japanese culture to westerners, in 2018 in Kyoto, Japan, Patrick was honoured with the Saké Samurai title from the Saké Brewers Junior Council of Japan. This life-time honour has been bestowed on only a few dozen non-Japanese throughout the world.

As President/Founder of Blue Note Sakés Patrick pioneered the Premium Saké category in Canada 23 years ago and remains the significant force introducing Saké to North Americans.

Fluent in Japanese, Patrick has developed extensive and exclusive relationships with some of the top Premium Saké producers in Japan, with a combined history of over 100 generations (2,300 years) of brewing excellence.

When Patrick is not doing Saké events across North America, he is in Japan working with saké breweries.

Patrick has also represented Canada as Saké Judge for the Saké Selection Competition (Concours Mondials) in Mie, Japan.
