Commonly referred to as “Rice Wine”, this classic liquor can be enjoyed both hot and cold. We proudly carry a large variety of sake, served in traditional cups.
Much of today’s sake is still served warm or hot, partly because heating can mask unpleasant aspects of the flavour of the drink and make it more palatable; something which is often necessary in the case of the cheapest futsushu (regular sake). Premium sake on the other hand, with its more delicate character and subtle aroma, is not generally recommended for heating to high temperatures. One exception to this is honjozoshu, which is premium sake that has had a limited amount of brewer’s alcohol added, and can have a lighter and smoother flavour when warmed.
Sake experts generally agree that most premium sake is best served chilled, with the optimum level for ginjoshu, daiginjoshu, junmai daiginjoshu and unpasteurized namazake considered to be suzuhie or ‘cool’, at around 15 degrees Celsius. This is the temperature at which the subtle flavors and fine fragrances of these refined sakes can be best enjoyed.

Unfiltered “Nigori” sake is a brew that has been coarsely filtered to allow the unfermented rice particles to remain in the sake to increase feeling and flavor. Always served chilled Nigori sake is a popular bar sake that pairs well with international spicy fare and appeals to those looking for direct flavors.
Sparkling sake is the hottest category in the sake world, and appeals to those who like fresh, bright and complex flavors and feelings similar to a sparkling wine. Some sparkling sakes are carbonated and some have a secondary bottle fermentation, and all do well served chilled in a sparking wine flute.
This is a rather popular form of sake. It includes fruits flavors such as apple, cherry and raspberry. It is sweet and fruity and ideal for mixing cocktails.
