Teach me about the proper storage methods for Japanese SAKE.

SAKE needs to be stored in a cool and dark place, as the color and flavor of SAKE is altered due to the effects of temperature and (ultraviolet) light. Store SAKE with delicate flavors such as Ginjo in a chilled location.

Store opened bottles of SAKE in a chilled location and drink as soon as possible.
