Sake is the liquid expression of love, time, and attention. Sommelier Shelley Sale guides you through the four types of sake, revealing the magic of this beautiful and complex beverage that dates back to the 8th century. Sake’s four key ingredients are rice, koji, iron-free water, and love, and the fermentation process is a months-long meditation in “home.” Sake masters leave their families in October and sleep at the brewery, only returning to their daily life in the spring when the sake is finished. The resulting drink is imbued with intention, tradition, and mastery.
