sake to me

The name for Japan in Japan is 日本 or Nippon. So how perfect is it that these outstanding sakés–though actually brewed here in Oregon–are available not just in 750ml bottles but 300ml nips?

Read more about our visit to the kura or saké brewery here. One of the many things we learned is that despite packing 18% ABV like the strongest beers, unlike said brews, rice beer does not age well (no tannins–or even natural preservatives like hops–for one). So you gotta drink it sooner than later. So not only was a bottle of their top-shelf G a steal at $10 for the nip, downing 300ml will be an easy chore. And for only $5, we won’t sweat pouring the Asian pear-infused saké into the hot mulled cocktail we’re going to serve at our holiday party.
