The Gotochi KITKAT Pairing Bar will be open at Roppongi Hills from April 19 to 29 serving KitKat and sake pairings chosen from 1,650 combinations by AI.
Japan is known for its KitKat flavours, with a total of 350 having been created to date, 40 of which are always available. Many of those flavours are made using ingredients from local regions across the country where they sold at those places’ souvenir shops. Their unique flavour combinations and colours have tickled the fancy of Japanese people and foreigners alike.
The KITKAT Pairing Bar offers a new way for both locals and overseas visitors to enjoy eating KitKats by picking which flavour will go best for them when paired with sake.
You must answer 5 questions at the bar from which the AI will filter your tastes from 150 combinations chosen that day. There will be a total of 1,650 combinations available across the 11 day period.
Of course, you can purchase your local flavour KitKat there and then. The sake combinations were carefully selected and curated by Hidetoshi Nakata, a former soccer player and experienced sake expert who has tried well over 350 brands of sake all over Japan. The sake pairings are supervised by CRAFT SAKE WEEK.
Have the AI find your flavours!
