Benefits of drinking hot sake

Warm your sake to experience new flavors

The graph on the right shows how altering the temperature of the sake changes the taste. When warming sake to around 98.6°F (37°C), the sweetness becomes more prominent and with a reduction in the bitterness, making it easier to drink. The increased sweetness is the most significant characteristic of warm sake.

Less chance of feeling hungover

When drinking chilled sake, you might not be aware of how drunk you are until later, when the feeling hits you all at once. This isn't the case with hot sake as your body starts to absorb the alcohol as you drink it, meaning you get drunk faster, so your body will process it quicker than cold sake.

Traditional sake cups to set the tone

The temperature of sake isn't the only thing that can change the taste. The type of cup can change it too. Traditional sake cups called "ochoko" and the decanter known as a "tokkuri" can enhance the flavor. As well as being beautiful to look at, they also let you experience the authentic taste of the sake you're drinking.
