NOW is the Best time for Sake!
Sake is great for any time of the year, but traditionally, the “official” season for sake is during autumn when the air starts to get cooler and the leaves start to fall.
You might question whether the “sake drinking season” is a fad, but there is logic behind this. In the past, Sake was brewed in the winter months, then bottled during the springtime. While you can drink them right away, it is believed that when you let the flavours mingle and age in the bottles for a bit, the sakes start to mature and the flavours are better expressed. The process takes approximately 6 months, and this is why autumn is deemed as the best time to savour sakes.
