Sake with Oysters

Aug 21, 2007

Sho Chiku Bai Nama Sake, an organic sake brewed by Takara Sake in Berkeley, is the best U.S. sake with oysters, and one of the best drinks with oysters period. Its extremely smooth, full-bodied, and fruity flavor screams out for Kumamotos or a sweet Pacific oyster like a Hog Island Sweetwater, but it also pairs well with salty oysters (for the same reasons that sake works with soy sauce). I had it with some Malpeques, which were thin, due to the season, and not up to the task.
