Sake News, Education, Events and More!

tim_photo.jpgHi, my name is Timothy Sullivan and I’m the founder of, a site devoted to sharing the appreciation, knowledge and joy of Japanese Sake with you.

How it all started

In 2005, I sampled premium sake for the first time at a Japanese Restaurant in New York City, and I couldn’t believe what I was tasting. The complex, nuanced and delicious flavors simply amazed me. I was hooked and immediately began researching how water and rice come together to make “Nihonshu”, known in the U.S. simply as “sake”. I started first as a blog to help myself keep track of the sakes I was tasting at the many sake events New York has to offer, and as a repository for everything I was learning. What began as a labor of love grew over the next few years to become a larger online resource for sake information and education in the U.S.
