The Story

Meet Sunil Sharma, Restaurant Manager of the trendy Japanese restaurant Umi in Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah. Sunil just returned from Hong Kong as a Certified Sake Sommelier by the Sake Sommelier Association - a title only a handful of people in the United Arab Emirates can boast.

People from around the world attended the course to become one of the rare few to attain this certification. Sunil also plans to attend the Master Sake Sommelier course in Japan later in the year, the most comprehensive taught sake service course in the world. Reaching the pinnacle of sake service, Sunil also plans to compete against the most skillful Sake Sommeliers to take on the global title of Sake Sommelier of the Year.

Head over to the hotel to test Sunil's knowledge on their range of still, sparkling or cloudy sakes and show your support to our newest sake expert! Thank you for all your hard work, Sunil, you truly are the heart of Hilton.
