5 tips to pick up the sake you will enjoy (plus what is SMV)
Mar 04, 2021 Season 2 Episode 13

What could be more disappointing than ordering something, waiting for it with excitement and then realising that it’s something you don’t like. It happens quite often unfortunately and buying and ordering sake is not an exception. So in this episode, I would like to give you a few tips on choosing sake and also talk about some parameters you will find on the bottle beside a milling ratio. And my tips of course are based on my own experience.

In addition to this episode, you can listen to the interviews I did with Satomi, Oliver, Erika and Natsuki last year (episodes 07, 09, 10 and 11) as they also had great and useful tips.
