True Sake Newsletter August 2013

Dear Sake Fan,

Welcome to the 108th Issue of America’s sake-centric Newsletter. In this issue read about the real scoop why True Sake opened its doors ten years ago, giggle at several sake selling retail nightmares, fixate on a Top Ten list of sakes you should try before you die, get stoked for the 8th Annual Sake Day on Sept. 28th, learn about a new nama and sparkling sake, get “Zoned” on a very traditional sake made the ol’ way, and try to guess what are the best selling sakes in the store.

Please note that the store will be closed on August 8th

In this issue:


Consider this...

On my first day of business I had 3 sales. One was to a fellow merchant from Hayes valley, and two went to family members. Things picked up day two and I sold 8 bottles of sake. I recorded each purchase by hand in a spiral binder. On each of the first 6 days of business I screwed up the tax. My earliest “wow!” record day was $300. Thankfully that would change in time!
