Five years since the first seeds were sewn, the Dojima Sake Brewery's official opening was marked by a spectacular ceremony on Friday 14th September.
Lucy Frazer MP was amongst the 250 guests invited and said, "It is exciting that the UK's first and only sake brewery has opened right here at Fordham Abbey. With its plans to showcase the best of Japanese sake, food, culture and arts, it is bound to become a popular tourist attraction. This is great news for our locality."
Tours of the brewery are due to start from 1st October.
