Sake is the heart of Japan. It’s magical, mystical and historically rich. It tells of stories that are thousands of years old and the tireless efforts of master craftsmen brewing fantastic booze. It’s a bridge between worlds, connecting western drinkers with a beverage that opens up a whole new world of drinking opportunities. It’s transformative, always changing, altering perceptions wherever it’s experienced.

Sake is all of these things and more. Brian Ashcraft’s The Japanese Sake Bible does a

There are quite a few good books for sake beginners that introduce concepts like how it's made, the different classifications, and the basic history. There are also very technical books that go into the chemistry and technical details of brewing and flavor.

This might be the only book that is both.

I've yet to encounter such a comprehensive discussion of sake-its history, its brewing, and the figures who have guided them both.

You can start this book from zero knowledge and end up with an admirable

A lively introduction to sake. The author is not a sake specialist as Philip Harper or John Gauntner, but a general writer on Japanese culture. He writes the book with journalistic flair, much of his information is based on interviews with brewers and other authorities from the sake world. Those interviews are what make the book so lively and provide its special character - plus the enormous amount of color photos, which makes it almost a wonder that such a beautiful book could be priced at just ...more

This is a great book for sake beginners and people interested in Japanese culture, since sake is part of that culture.

Love reading it, liked the images but would have appreciated a few infographics, rather than just words and pictures.

Love the tasting notes, since I haven't had that many different sake yet.

It's a must for anyone who wants to know the past and present of this delightful drink.
