DJ Richie Hawtin is one of the biggest names in minimal, and I always made sure not to miss his shows at festivals ever since I discovered his music back in 2011! Like all creative people, Richie couldn’t just focus on one job, but wanted a cool side project to do in his spare time. Hawtin first launched ENTER.Sake in 2012 at his award-winning club concept ENTER. What started as a wish to share his passion for Sake and Japanese culture with friends after twenty years of travelling, working, and tasting sake in Japan, led to the launch of Ibiza’s first true sake bar experience, the creation of Hawtin’s own boutique ENTER.Sake collection and one of the most-anticipated parties on the island. This summer ENTER.Sake makes its US debut, with an exclusive launch at New York restaurant TAO Downtown, the first time ever that Hawtin’s Sake and Shochu brand, created with the Matsumoto Sake Brewery in Kyoto, will be available outside of Ibiza.
