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".
Awfully glad to have these rare, single pasteurization hiyaoroshi brews back in Seattle.
Traditionally released in late summer/early autumn in Japan, when you crack one open and pour, it sounds like, “I’m just glad to be here.” Kanpai to that sentiment! #hiyaoroshi #gokyo #oyama #urakasumi

Don’t go thirsty, dear nomidachi!

Do these look familiar? The one on the left is Gokyo Hiyaoroshi, and we just received word that our 2 case allotment arrives tomorrow. Give us a shout if you’d like us to set some aside for you!
In other good news, the one on the right, Oyama Hiyaoroshi, as well as Urakasumi Hiyaoroshi, will be available next week.
Kanpai to the unexpected pleasures of supply chain hiccups!🙄
We like to begin each year with a nod to the past, so this week we’re pouring some of the most popular sake from 2021.
It’s kind of unusual for us to have 2 sake from the same brewery make our bestseller list, but that’s the case with these savory sake from Fukuoka, Niwa no Uguisu.
Come on down and treat yourself to a pleasant start to this Year of the Tiger.
Happy New Year!
It’s been a rough couple of years for everyone, and we’re just glad to be here (in our new Cherry Street digs).
We think there’ll be a lot of positive developments in 2022, including the return of our favorite celebratory sake, Kaiun.
We wish you and your loved ones health, prosperity, and much laughter in 2022 and beyond, and we’re so very thankful to have you in our lives.
We live at the bottom of this hill. While we’re probably not *technically* snowed in, we are definitely *iced in* now.
While we were hoping to be open the rest of the week to close out 2021, with more snow and freezing temps in the forecast, that’s looking less likely.
At any rate, we’ll do our best to keep you updated about the sake situation, and we hope to see you again in person asap. We’re thankful to be cozy and safe with family and hope you’re enjoying those same comforts. Kanpai!
