Duration: 2.5 hours

Join hosts Ali and Joana at The Gin Library for a sushi masterclass and Japanese gin tasting, creating a unique gastronomic pairing.

Locally born Joana is considered the best sushi chef in the Azores.  She will talk you through the basics of preparing sushi.  You’ll learn how to handle sharp knives, and prepare delicacies using the finest and freshest ingredients. Joana loves to combine modern and traditional flavours and ingredients to create her masterpieces. She personally collects the fish as the boats come into the port of Rabo de Peixe. A vegetarian option is available (please request at the time of booking.)

After you’ve honed your sushi making skills under Joana’s tutelage you’ll get to try out your creations. Ali, owner of The Gin Library, will show you how to make the perfect gin and tonic to match your dishes, using a specially selected Japanese gin. These gins have the perfect botanicals and citrus that carefully complement the delicate sushi flavours. The Gin Library is located at The Solar Branco Eco Hotel. It contains one of the largest private gin collections in the world. Ali is the brand ambassador for Rocha Negra gin, distilled here on the island.

The Solar Branco Eco Estate is proud to be the first company in the Azores to consult with Mr Goodfish, an EU backed program on sustainable seafood for the restaurant industry. Read more here.
