I received a very large bottle of Sake, but have not opened it because I am sure I can't drink it all quickly. Once I open it how long can I expect it to last, and what's the best way to keep it good for the longest possible.

What temperature should it be stored at, and what's the best temperate when drinking it?

Split it into small aluminum containers and store it in the fridge. Fill it to the top so there is very little air in the container. You can find kid sized 12 oz water bottles on sell for just a few bucks. It should last weeks but best used in one week.

There is also suction pumps and nitrogen.

Temperature for drinking is personal taste.

  • Just wondering why aluminum, is there a particular reason, would glass work? Commented Aug 16, 2018 at 15:18
  • Glass would work. You just don't find many glass bottles with lids that seal.
