Our Script

We at The Kabuki Works are solely dedicated to three ideals

  • The import and telling of great stories from the Japanese
  • Imagining products that redifine the sphere of Japanese alcohol
  • Representing the people we work with, with the highest calibre of class and efficiency

Our Props

We only deal with the brewerys.

This may seem like a given, but many other sake in the market are present without the brewers endorsement, or even knowledge, due to the mass buying from Japanese distribution companies - otherwise known as parallel import. We want the money flowing to the right people.

Professional cold storage and logistics chain.

Cold, all the way. Fridges set to 4 degrees, drivers that get to you as fast as possible - and ensuring no stock sits in our facilities for longer than they should. Unless, of course, they taste better aged.

Drink like you're drinking from the brewery.

We ONLY ship with temperature controlled containers, and all our sake come from the brewery's freshest batch(excluding the aged sake of course). Our aim is to have you drinking the exact same experience you would if you were drinking straight out of the tank.

Our Cast

Seeing himself more of a drinker than a sommelier, Reuben's passion has always been in providing the best drinking experience for his customers and guests. Although holding almost every sake certification under the sun, he considers the stories created between people to be of more importance than the technicalities of alcohol.

Communications & Relationships Manager

Born and raised in Aizu, Fukushima, Hatsumi is a veteran in the F&B industry, having worked for more than 10 years in restaurants in both Japan and overseas. A love for sake and rice is as natural to her as her love for her hometown region of Aizu, which is both a rice-growing region and also holds some of the most award winning breweries in Japan.
