Hot Sake

Because some like it hot!

Forget about those scalding thimbles of sake you had down at the sushi train in your early twenties, there is a whole world of sophistication behind heating sake to just the right temperature to bring out the nuances and enhance the mood.

Imagine cracking open a thermos of warm sake while off-piste skiing or gently warming a rich Kimoto Junmai to enliven the soul around a beachside bonfire in the middle of winter. Remember - with a little attention to detail, hot sake can have both style and swagger.
