Guest Speaker John Gauntner Co-founder and Content Editor, Sake Today
John Gauntner is recognized as the world’s leading non-Japanese sake expert. A resident of Japan since 1988, he (necessarily) both speaks and reads Japanese fluently, and is well known in the sake industry as the window to making sake understandable and popular outside of Japan. He has been writing and lecturing about sake since 1994, beginning with an eight-year stint writing the “Nihonshu” column in the Japan Times (Japan’s most widely read English language newspaper). He followed that with a weekly column on sake in Japanese for the Yomiuri Shimbun, Japan’s and the world’s most widely distributed Japanese newspaper. He has published six books on sake across two languages, hundreds of articles on the topic, publishes a free monthly newsletter and offers various digital products that make sake easily understandable.
