Ask Beau - "How often do you drink sake?"

Posted by admin in 2007, Ask Beau, May, Newsletter

I get this question quite often and my response is not often enough! Just kidding you John R. from Portland, Oregon who also asked "How do I prevent hangovers?"

Beau Timken

Typically I will drink sake three nights per week. This involves new product tasting and of course quality control tasting of our inventory. It is hard to keep up with over 200 sakes to see which are drinking well and which are not. And we at True Sake always thank our customers who come in and tell us what is tasting really good and what may be a little off.

I will have several sips of the sakes that I do not prefer and will have a glass of the sakes that drink really well. I would have to say that I would average about 10oz of sake on each of these nights. We also taste in the day, but this is more of a "spitting" occasion.

Now about the hangovers! My first recommendation is obvious - do not drink! If you do, of course drink in moderation. I also highly recommend drinking as much water as you can whilst drinking sake and then right before bed. There are other tricks, but remember if you play with the bull eventually you will get the horns.

Please send your sake specific questions to askbeau2 @ truesake.com. (This address is not for general questions and I only review the questions once per month. All correspondence should use info @ truesake.com.)
