Every year, one Sake Samurai is named in Japan for their individual dedication to elevating sake around the world. Sotheby’s Global Head of Wine Retail Vanessa Conlin shares a glass with Monica Samuels, who received the prestigious title in 2017, while they discuss the top sake-producing regions and the many components that magnify sake’s natural flavors.
