Joy of Sake Info & How-To Guide

July 18th, 2014
By



Tonight, at the Hawaii Convention Center, the world's largest sake celebration outside Japan takes place, offering the opportunity to taste 370 premium labels in peak condition and eat ono kine grindz from 19 top restaurants from Hawaii and California! I think it's still not too late to purchase your Joy of Sake tickets for the event, so go getum!

Joy of Sake
Joy of Sake

The following is a guide for those who will be attending this year.

Joy of Sake how-to guide - (from Frolic Hawaii's Mari Taketa)

  1. Nobody gets through all 370 sake, so stop worrying about that. Thirty to 40 is a very good sampling.
  2. If you've never tried sake, start with a daiginjo A. It'll be floral, nuanced, gentle, a good intro.
  3. Check the card in front of each sake: It'll tell you if judges awarded it a gold or silver star in its category. No star doesn't mean it's bad. The overall level of sake entered in Joy of Sake judging is impressive and hard to match even in Japan, where the JOS tour ends this fall after a stop in New York next month.
  4. If you see a black star, that sake isn't available in the U.S. The card also tells you where it was made, in case you're interested in sake from a particular region.
  5. If you're a novice, don't worry about searching for the harmony of taste, aroma, body and texture the pros look for. Everyone will have a different personal favorite. Just sip to find what you like.
