How do I store my sake?

Sake should be stored in the chiller at a temperature of around 3°C to 5°C. Once opened, sake oxidizes but fortunately more slowly than wine. Enjoy sake within one week of opening but the most pleasurable state of the sake will be in the first 3 days.


What is SMV?

Sake Meter Value or Nihonshu-do [日本酒度]. This value can be used as an indicator of sweetness: the higher the number the dryer the sake. The average is somewhere around +3. The sake meter value is based on the specific gravity or density of the sake, which is influenced by sugar and alcohol content. It is measured with a hydrometer. The higher the sugar content, the higher the specific gravity. As the perception of sweetness depends on many factors, like the acidity, presence of fruity aromas and personal taste, SMV might not always accurately reflect your own impression, but especially the more extreme values can be a good guide.

What is RPR?

The rice polishing ratio is the percentage of the rice that remains after the husk (outer portion) of the brown rice (all rice is brown prior to removal of the husk) is polished off. The husk and outer portion of the kernel contain more protein and fats than the inner portion of the grain. These two components can produce undesirable aromas and negative flavors in the sake. So technically, if the number of the rice polishing ratio is lower, the rice had to be polished more It usually takes 2 to 3 days to polish rice down to less than half its original size.
If the sake is made with rice that has a higher percentage of its husk and outer portion of the core milled off, then more rice will be required to make that particular sake As a result, sake made with rice that has been highly milled is usually more expensive than a sake that has been made using less polished rice. However, this does not always mean that sake made by highly milled rice is of better quality than sake made by rice that has been milled less.
