dassai-sakeA sake shop by Asahi Shuzo Co. is set to land in Paris next spring with the help of Chef Joel Robuchon. In addition to selling the company's famed Dassai sake, the shop will also operate a bar that will pair sake with Robuchon's food.Dassai sake is produced in Iwakuni, Yamaguchi Prefecture and compliments Robuchon's French dishes. Although it's rare for a domestic brewery  to set up shop outside of Japan, Asahi Shuzu Co. hopes to broaden the scope of sake internationally and blend it with local Parisian culture. Source: Japan TimesImage Courtesy Tmizo
