The art of making Saké is a 2,000-year-old-tradition.  “The Birth of Saké” is a cinematic documentary that follows a small group of Japanese workers that live together over a span of few months on an annual basis to make this time-honored brew.

Very inspiring documentary that embraces tradition and promotes slowing down to take the time to make something special.  It enforces the hand-crafted scene which produces results that outperforms mass-produced mundane industrial production.

This documentary is also available on Netflix for those that subscribe.

Hope you are inspired by the efforts and dedication given by these saké brewers to start a distilling tradition of your own.
