"If you've always harbored a suspicion that there was more to sake than the bottles gathering dust on store shelves or what was served to you at a cut-rate restaurant, you're right. Thankfully Jeff Cioletti is here to explain what goes into this hearty and happily complex drink. From the traditional processes to how you can best enjoy each sip, Cioletti, an internationally recognized drinks authority is here to guide you."

"Jeff Cioletti does justice to sake’s long history in Japan before turning to production methods, tasting notes, and the inside-baseball know-how to keep you in the good graces of the artisanal sake crowd."
