Father's Day Sake

Shopping for the father figure in your life doesn’t have to be tough. Instead of grabbing a gift card per usual, why not pick up some sake for the dad who loves spirits? We’ve rounded up sake gift ideas that dad will be happy to receive this year:

 Under $40

Kanbara Bride of the Fox

Paired best with pasta, soups, cooked fish, or a juicy hamburger, the Kanbara "Bride of the Fox" holds notes of green grapes, minerals, wheat, and steamed rice. This Ginjo sake is very rich, and appeals to the dad who loves to drink red wine.

Under $100

 Ginga Shizuku

Looking for a silky smooth drink? Check out our Ginga Shizuku "Divine Droplets". When making this brew, the sake is separated from the lees by placing it in canvas bags. From there, gravity works to drip the sake out slowly, which creates that smooth taste. Filled with persimmon and plum flavors, the taste is wrapped in a chewy and slightly fruity package.


For the whisky lover

Is your dad a whisky aficionado? If so, check out our Window's Migaki Gold Shochu.  A distilled spirit, the shochu has a maturing flavor and roundness that closely resembles the taste of whiskey.


Beginner Sake Kit ($113)

If your dad is new to premium sake and you're looking for a few solid, safe (but still exciting) brews to gift, this is a fantastic option. We’ve picked three popular and highly acclaimed brews for the beginner sake kit: the Denshin Yuki, Kurosawa Nigori, and the Taiheizan “Grand Mountain.”


White Wine Drinkers Kit ($139)

Looking for crisp and clean, white wine-like sakes? Then this is your starter kit.

We've put together a kit of three outstanding brews, sure to please even the most discerning white wine aficionado. From the balanced Hakutsuru "Sho-Une," to the honeydew-melon inspired Ozeki Osakaya Chobei "First Boss," this kit will make you want to pull out some of your best whites and go toe-to-toe.

 Red Wine Drinkers Kit ($153)

If your dad is partial to the big and bold characteristics that red wines typically offer, then this kit is for him.

 Our red wine drinkers kit contains three different bottles of sake: the Chiyomosubi “Long Life,” the Ippin, and the Midori Kawa “Green River.” This kit assembled for red wine lovers is full of flavor, deeply complex, and is guaranteed to have your dad coming back to order more.

 Sake of the Month Club ($119.99-$149.99/month)

Our sake of the month club contains two expertly selected sakes [each a 720ml bottle] delivered straight to your dad’s door. Whether a novice or expert, our Sake of the Month Club has two distinct levels: Emperor or Samurai.

 You can also choose month-to-month options or buy in bunches of three, six, or 12 months - we will take care of the rest!
