Find Your Sake Taste
Buying sake, especially one that you have not tried before, from an online store can be hit and miss. That is why we developed an AI algorithm to help you choose your preferred sake style. Start by taking our quiz (button below) and refine the algorithm by rating bottles you enjoy and don't enjoy.
Learn more about the people behind the sake
Sake is a product of the people making it, more than the area it comes from. Unfortunately, there is precious little information out there on who is behind the sake you drink and what their aim was when brewing it.
That’s different at Kurashu! Every sake has a story and every brewery has a philosophy and we take pains to highlight them on our website. Hop on over to the brewery or sake pages to learn more about what and who’s behind the sake you’re drinking.
Try out sake in a wine glass, or at different temperatures
Yes, it’s fun to drink sake out of a traditional sake glass (called an ochoko by the way). It’s also the best way when drinking sake warm. But you’re really only doing many a great sake justice when you drink it out of a wine glass. The aromas are more intense and the sake can be enjoyed even more. Find out suggestions for glasses and temperatures on the sake’s page.
Try out sake with western dishes
Sake is an incredibly versatile drink and is much easier to pair with food than wine is. We delve more into the subject here but suffice it to say that it’s mainly because sake is low in acidity. So try out sake with Western dishes as well (your author’s favorite pairing is a roast chicken with a yamahai junmai, for example) and we’re sure you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Find our recipe pages here, or pairing suggestions on the sake’s page.
