Today we took a tour of the Sake brewery in Penrith. We went around the factory and found out all about the process of turning rice into Sake. Our guide was the factory owner who was very interesting and informative. The adults got to taste some different types of Sake and a Sake cocktail. The children tried a little when we got home but declared it a bit strong.
