As Florida’s best sake store, 305 Wines offers an extensive and carefully curated selection of more than 70 different sake labels. To give us some insight into the world of sake and our diverse range, we sat down with Guilherme de Macedo, a WSET Level 3 Sake certified and Master Sake Sommelier.

305 Wines: Guilherme, can you tell us a bit about the diversity of the sake offerings at 305 Wines?

Guilherme: Absolutely, at 305 Wines, we offer a diverse range of sakes spanning different classifications and brewing methods. From Junmai Daiginjo to Honjozo and Futsushu, each type brings unique characteristics, tastes, and experiences for the sake enthusiast.

305 Wines: What makes 305 Wines the best sake store in Florida?

Guilherme: We pride ourselves on our wide selection, and we work hard to ensure we provide our customers with a variety of sakes from different regions and producers. Not only do we stock the well-known sake styles, but we also venture into the lesser-known yet equally exciting styles to offer something unique to our customers.

305 Wines: Can you give us some insight into the specific categories of sakes we offer?

Guilherme: Certainly.

  • Junmai Daiginjo: This is the pinnacle of sake brewing, made with highly polished rice and no added alcohol. Our Junmai Daiginjo selection includes some of the most elegant and refined sakes available, each offering a harmony of flavors and aromas.
  • Honjozo: A touch of brewer’s alcohol is added to Honjozo sake, bringing out different characteristics in the sake. Explore our Honjozo collection to find a variety of sakes with a clean, rich, and savory taste.
  • Futsushu: Also known as “table sake,” Futsushu is a versatile category and can be enjoyed warm, cold, or at room temperature. We offer an array of Futsushu sakes that are perfect for everyday enjoyment or pairing with a meal.

305 Wines: Finally, what is your favorite sake at 305 Wines, and why?

Guilherme: It’s hard to choose a favorite, as the beauty of sake lies in its diversity. Depending on my mood and the occasion, I might choose a rich and complex Junmai Daiginjo, a savory Honjozo, or a casual, comforting Futsushu.

What I can say, though, is that at 305 Wines, we have a sake to suit every palate and occasion, making us truly the best sake store in Florida.
