Sake has been popular in Europe for a while now. However, it is still a mysterious drink if you are not used to it. Sake does not only pair well with sushis or Japanese food, it has much more potential. Once you know about Sake basics, you will be more interested in the deep Sake world. Let’s review how to make Sake, how to serve it, store it, identify its different categories and enjoy them.
I will bring back interesting and fashionable Sakes from Japan in May.
It will be a good opportunity to sit up and take notes on this delicate drink. Welcome to the Sake world.
