My name is Mei and I've been at True Sake since 2013. I was interested in sake after I moved to San Francisco. Who knew the sake world was so fun and interesting? Everyone you meet and talk to in the sake industry, is just so welcoming and is open to teaching you more about the sake world. I really wanted to know more and become involved in the industry. And here I am!
Kenbishi Honjozo - My go-to for a hot sake. THE BEST hot sake in my opinion. Also tasty on the rocks or even chilled. Try it!! I love love love this sake! Don't be surprised if I recommend it to you at the store. There's good reason!
Chokaisan Junmai Daiginjo - This was THE sake that turned me on to sake. Fruity but not sweet, aromatic, crisp, clean. Super easy drinking.
Stella - One of our newer additions to the store. For sure a must try! So much complexity, and flavors going on, it's incredible.
Choryo Yoshinosugi Omachi Yamahai Junmai Taru - Choryo makes one of the best Taruzake available to the US. They use a specific area of the cedar tree to achieve the ideal flavor. Not to mention this sake uses Omachi rice, and is a Yamahai Junmai style. Any sake geek's interest would peek if they saw that on a menu. I recommend this sake chilled or heated.
Kikuhime Daiginjo Genshu "Chrysanthemum Princess" - I absolutely love this sake! Kikuhime never releases any fresh sake, and all their bottles are aged. A lot of people ask me what is a super special sake to pair with a steak dinner or rich foods. THIS ONE! That's not all, this sake taste even better after opened for a couple of weeks.
