SAKAYA’s Best Selling Sake for 2012

It’s time for our annual countdown of our best selling sake for the year just ended.  There might be a surprise or two here but we see the shifts among our top ten as being reflective not only of growing interest in sake as an everyday beverage choice, but also of a deeper involvement and appreciation for the variety of different styles.  And so without further ado….
