It is widely thought that the traditional way to enjoy sake is slightly warm in a Tokkuri (Japanese flask for heating sake).
While there is certainly a long history of preparing warm Sake in Japan, many believe it was partially to improve or “bring out” the flavors in less refined Sake products.
But the fact is, pure, high quality sake does not need to be heated. (Although the topic of warming or not, always makes for a fun discussion!)
When Serving Chilled or at Room Temperature:
Sake responds well to gentle chilling, although on warm summer days its crisp taste and light consistency is extremely refreshing at very cold temperatures.
2 to 3 hours in the fridge should get Fu-Ki Sake to a temperature that allows you to enjoy the light, fresh taste that premium Sake offers, without overpowering the taste with too much iciness.
When Serving Warm:
The ideal way to warm sake is to pour it into a Tokkuri with water, and then place the Tokkuri into a pan of hot water. The narrow neck of the Tokkuri, will help to trap in the heat.
Either way, one of the basic rules of serving Sake is that pouring Sake for others is considered proper etiquette, but pouring for yourself is not.
Because of its rich body, Fu-Ki is also considered to be especially well suited to enjoy with food. It will cleanse and sensitize your palate to enhance the pleasure of food tastes. Don’t be afraid to enjoy it with a meal, especially tempura, sashimi, or Chinese foods.
