True Sake Newsletter July 2005

Posted by Stephen King in 2005, July, Monthly Intro, Newsletter
Welcome to the eleventh installment of America's sake-centric newsletter. In celebration of our recent 4th of July holiday I present a newsletter that is filled with Independence and fireworks known as "Sake Bombs". I also touch on the hot topic of cold sake at a Bar-B-Q. There are three sake tasting events listed within including the amazing Joy of Sake Tasting featuring over 150 sakes on September 15th at the SF Nikko Hotel. Write that date down! So never fear your sake servant is ready to pour you another issue of all things sake!

In this issue:


Consider this...

Historically alcohol was added to preserve sake so that it would last longer. Then added alcohol was used during the war to expand batches. Today brewer's alcohol is added to sake not to make it stronger, rather it is added to bring out a bigger aroma, softer texture, and gentler flavor.
