Brewery Tour & Tasting2019-10-15T15:32:30+00:00


Dojima is proud to present our brewery tours and 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.

Dojima Sake Brewery Tour & Tasting

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.

Our brewer will walk you through the brewery to look at the process we go through to brew 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. Next it is upstairs to our tasting room which is a beautiful environment in which to learn the basics of sake and to taste three varieties. The bar area looks down into the main fermentation room and the balcony looks out over the wonderful English countryside. This is a very special way to enjoy this wonderful and often misunderstood beverage.

Cost: £30

Tours last approximately 80~90 minutes.

Please email our brewer Tony Mitchell at for dates and availability of upcoming tours.


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.

If you are interested in a particular aspect of sake culture or sake brewing then please contact us at to register your interest.
