Dear Sake Drinker,

Welcome to the February Issue of America's sake-centric newsletter. In this read look how to best "use" sake for V-Day, cry over a romantic sake poem, take the heat of the Chicago sake scene, smell the new nama arrivals, get the bad news on shipping sake, and find out why sake bottles are differently colored. And most importantly of all - keep sake safe this cold, wet and windy February.

In this issue:


Consider this...

So what the heck is that white stuff in my Nigori sake? Those my friend are the unfermented rice particles that do not get pressed out of the final product. When yeasts eat starches that have been converted into sugars they sometimes do not eat them all! The remains usually get filtered or pressed out, but in Nigori sake they leave a good portion in to achieve a feeling and a certain flavor.
