The Japanese Sake Bible


Kampai! The Japanese Sake Bible is the ultimate book about Japan's national drink—from its history, culture and production methods to how to choose the best sake and recommended food pairings.

Author Brian Ashcraft has put together lively commentaries based on dozens of interviews with master brewers and sake experts across Japan. His fascinating stories are accompanied by over 300 full-color photographs, maps and drawings.

A unique feature of this book is that it includes reviews, tasting notes, scores and a buying guide for over 100 of the leading sake brands, written by respected Japanese sake expert Takashi Eguchi.
