Richie Hawtin Debuts Sake Collection in the US
Music isn’t the only industry in which DJ and producer Richie Hawtin has made a name for himself. In 2012, the techno heavyweight launched his boutique line of Sake (created with the Matsumoto Sake Brewery in Kyoto) at his renown club concept ENTER. in Ibiza out of a wish to share his passion for Japanese culture with friends and fans. Two years since that initial debut, Hawtin takes his Sake collection and Shochu brand to the US. The line is scheduled to launch in the U.S. this September, followed by a broader release in Europe later this fall. The collection will make its debut exclusively at the swanky TAO Downtown restaurant in New York City. The launch at TAO will mark the first time the Sake has been made available outside of Ibiza.
“We are thrilled to have ENTER.Sake as an exclusive offering at TAO Downtown. [Sake Master] Richie Hawtin has proven the brand’s success in Ibiza and we are looking forward to bringing its refined complexity to our guests stateside,” said Noah Tepperberg, a partner at TAO Group. enter-sacca-richie
ENTER.Sake will arrive at TAO Downtown with two variations: the balanced and zippy medium dry ENTER.Black, and its more refined and complex counterpart, ENTER.Gold. They are the first two options in a complete line of sake and shochu that Hawtin plans to release in Europe and the US.
To celebrate the launch of ENTER.Sake, Hawtin will host an exclusive invite-only evening at TAO on Friday, Septebmer 26.
