• Sake’s shelf life is from six months to a year.
No, it does not age. Sake generally should be drunk while it is still young – within a year of its production.
Store sake in a dark and cool place, much the same way in which you would store wine.

In keeping with industry practices for beer and wine, we do not put the bottling date and/or expiration date on the bottles, although wines do include the vintage year.
