You don’t need to fly to Japan to see inside an authentic working sake brewery. We’ll take you on a tour through the main production areas and share the secrets of how we turn rice in sake.


Dojima is proud to present our brewery tours and guided tastings. It is our dream to introduce as many people around the world to sake and sake culture as possible. In the stunning setting of the Fordham Abbey estate, this unique brewery tour is like nothing available anywhere else in the world.


1. Production Tour

One of our brewers will walk you through the production areas and explain how we start with rice and end up with this fabulously elegant thing called sake. You’ll be able to take a peak at any new batches that are underway in our fermentation room.

2. Guided Tasting

After the 30 minute production tour you’ll get the chance to go upstairs to our amazing tasting bar and visitor centre for a guided tasting of three different kinds of sake. Where available, we’ll also present a fresh, unpasteurised “nama” sake which can only be enjoyed exclusively by visitors to the brewery. As you enjoy the sake, our brewers will share more on the history and culture of sake and how to enjoy it to its fullest. The visitor centre bar and balcony make for superb spots to take photographs of both the surrounding scenery and the main fermentation room in the brewery below.

At Dojima we don’t just want people to drink sake, we want them to understand how it is made and even learn how to brew. Whether you’re a home brewer or beer brewer who wants to expand your horizons, the Dojima Sake Academy will be something that will help you to understand the complexities of this very special beverage.

The Academy will offer short and residential courses which cover everything from the brewing process itself to individual aspects of sake culture. If you have ambitions to be a fully fledged sake brewer or are just curious about how to enjoy warm sake, our Academy will have something for you.
