Epcot's Mitsukoshi Department Store Sake Counter

Tucked away in the very back of the Mitsukoshi Department Store in Epcot's Japan Pavilion is a subtle little bar that's set up for sake tasting. Sake is an alcoholic beverage that's made with fermented rice, and often referred to as "rice wine" even though the process of it's creation is much closer to that of a beer. Sake frequently has an alcohol content between 28%-20%, so it packs a little more punch than your typical beer or wine.

There in the back of the store next to an exit door is the quaint little corner along a wall of sake bottles for sale. The counter is never very busy, but then it's not really set up for guests to linger with no tables or seating no tables or seats. It seems to me that it was almost an after thought in the pavilion.

The tasting menu at the counter offers about 10 different sakes, plum wine, and the occasional cocktail. It showcases a good variety of sake styles from sweet to dry, unfiltered, filtered and sparkling.

The Sake bar has a sampler offer where you can taste 3 different sakes for about $14. The offerings to sample change from time to time, which makes this a good option to try a few different sakes over several different trips. Recently Disney has added a second sake counter in the middle of the pavilion where guests can grab an interesting snack and a sake cocktail.

For more information about this little forgotten bar be sure to stop by the Disney Food Blog and check out AJ's Sake Bar Review and her experience tasting many of the different sake's offered. Our thanks to her for the exclusive use of her sake image.

If they still have it, try the wakatake! We sampled some sake several years ago and loved it.

Over the years we have bought a variety of dishes and ceramics from the Mitsukoshi Department Store in Epcot. Several have been lost or broken.

Do you have a catalog for your Epcot Center Store
