America's First Sake StoreTrue Sake is the first dedicated sake store outside of Japan. America's First Sake Store." Opened on August 7th 2003 the store more closely resembles a "Sake Boutique" with dramatic backlit shelving units highlighting the beauty of Japanese sake bottles and labels. Heralded as one part sake museum, one part sake shrine, one part sake school, and one part sake fascination institution national publications from Time and Newsweek to the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal have critically acclaimed True Sake as the "Definitive" source for all things Nihonshu ( sake ).The strength of the store rests not in its beauty and design but rather with its amazing selection of imported-only Japanese sakes and it's devotion to the proper conditioning and freshness of its inventory.
