How to Heat Sake

Have you ever wondered how you could enjoy warm or hot sake by just using your “Tokkuri” or sake jug? Sometimes you may not have a microwave safe sake jug which you can use to heat your sake, so this video will show you a traditional way of doing so by simply using boiling water in a pot to heat your sake.

Please note that if you are using a microwave to heat your sake, be sure to check your sake jug for any metallic or gold paint. In the case that your sake jug has metallic or gold paint on it, DO NOT use in your microwave or you may risk damaging it. Heating your sake jug in boiling water is a much safer route in the case that you are not sure if your flask is microwave safe.

Thank you for this video. I just used it to prepare an old bottle that’s over 20 years old. It’s being used in memory of my late Grandfather that passed today. Really, thank you for the help in preparing.

I always heated my sake in a pan under a low heat for about 2-3 minutes. Although I’ve never had an issue of burning out the alcohol (or too much), im curious to know if i should not do that from now on? Maybe ill use this method and test the difference. I hate microwaves. Lo
