Sake Brewer Seeks Fertile Field

When you raise a glass of champagne, sparkling wine or whatever fine bubbly at the end of the week, spare a thought for Masa Shiroki’s New Year plans.

The Vancouver-based entrepreneur has been working for a few years to elevate the ranks of Japanese-style sake, brewing it in small batches from a Granville Island shop, and trying to get it on high-end shelves and tables.

This year, in a bid to qualify for a significantly better tax rebate, and in response to consumers wanting to buy more locally sourced products, the owner of Artisan Sake Maker started growing sake rice here in B.C. instead of importing the premium ingredient from Japan.
