An alcoholic beverage brewed using water, rice, and koji mold as its main ingredients.
Nomi (pronounced “noh-mee”):
Japanese word meaning “only.” When paired with the word saké, it is also slang for, to put it politely, “one who likes to drink.” (from the verb nomu, to drink)
We named our shop Saké Nomi because we sell only premium saké, and we hope to create an atmosphere that will appeal to “drinking enthusiasts".

What a fantastic way to start my day and my work week, with a visit from one of my mentors and best friends from college (and his lovely wife!), paying a visit to Saké Nomi all the way from Savannah, GA. Saké is an amazing time-traveling mechanism, bringing people together across many years and many miles. Thank you so much, Will & Adrienne Lynch! Kanpai!

Can’t wait to introduce this brew this weekend: Seitoku Genshu Junmai Ginjo. The brewers describe their sake as “gracious and accommodating” and “honest.” Friday & Saturday you have a chance to see how those adjectives taste. Kanpai! #sakenomi

Like many, we were hit hard this morning with the news of Anthony Bourdain's passing. We loved his Japan-related TV episodes and his appreciation of, and affection for, the country's food and drinking culture. A professed sake lover and not infrequent visitor to Seattle, we fantasized that someday he would wander in to Saké Nomi, and it would be our privilege to pour him something.
We managed to save most of the Japan episodes and we'll probably be re-watching them throughout the weekend. Please join us if you'd like to raise a glass and share some laughs, and probably a few tears.
Kanpai, and rest in peace, Tony. The world's already less brilliant without you.

Our friends at Kurand Sake preaching TRUTH! Though they are a little hard to come by in the US, some of our favorite sake are honjozoshu. Don't drink the grade, drink the sake. Kanpai

Just a few of this week’s featured sake. Beautifully packaged, but remember, sake is just like people: it’s what’s INSIDE that counts. #kanpai #junmaidaiginjo #junmaiginjo #sakenomi #seattle #firstthursday #無濾過 #純米大吟醸 #純米吟醸 #酒飲み#酔鯨 #伝心 #Born
