Respect the Pouring Tradition
Never serve yourself saké. Yours should be poured by your drinking companion, then you return the favor!
Drink Once Everyone’s Glass is Full
Good manners still matter—raise your saké glasses and drink together as a “cheers (kanpai).”
Savor the Flavor
Take in the aroma, sip and let it linger in your mouth to experience the complex flavors.
Pair with Your Favorite Foods
Saké elevates natural flavors and pairs well with a wide variety of food from around the world. Try it!
