Description offered by the publishers


本書『Drinking Japan』は、日本の酒文化に対する並々ならぬ愛情があふれる視点から書き下ろされた日英対訳の文化ガイド。利酒師でありソムリエの上級資格ともいわれるWSET Level3を持つ著者が、日本酒だけではなく、様々な地域で造られている多様なお酒を、醸造の方法や種類の説明はもちろん、その歴史や普及の過程、はたまたぴったりな肴など、多岐にわたって紹介しています。


Good  drinking  is  a  multidimensional  experience. A  finely  produced  wine  or  whisky,  for example, will engage the drinker’s four senses as he/she considers and evaluates such aspects of the drink as flavor, smell, appearance, and mouthfeel. This dimension should  appeal  to  every  serious  sybarite.  But  the  drinking  experience  is  enhanced  exponentially  when  one  knows  something  about  the  history  of  the  beverage,  the  culture  from  which  it  has  emerged,  its  production  process,  and  its  marketing.  In  Drinking  Japan—It’  s  Not  Just  Sake,  we  have  provided  our  readers  with  all  of  this  information  and  more.    This  intellectual  dimension  makes  one  a  more  interesting  person, to be sure, but it may also provide input to the third dimension. The Irish call it “craic,” which is the pleasure that good conversation and pleasant company bring. Of  course,  one  can  always  talk  about  the  weather  or  the  latest  blip,  boom,  bust,  or  belch  from  the  stock  market,  but  isn’t  it  more  interesting  to  discuss  whether  your  Chardonnay is oaked or unoaked, your sake predominantly sweet or dry, or how long your whisky has been aged?
