Sake Shopping near South Berwick/Dover

Hi All- my first post. :)

I am looking to buy good sake regularly, and not have to travel too far. Obviously I can find Gekkekian in the big supermarkets but I'd prefer not to have to resort to that. ;)

I know that Philbricks Fresh Market in Portsmouth carries a few decent bottles, but they are small and high-priced, and many times the shelves are bare.

One example of a sake that I really enjoy is "Wandering Poet".

Thanks for any tips!

  1. I can tell you this, the State of New Hampshire Liquor Commission has a online database:

    Your favorite is listed, but not currently in stock, The Portsmouth store has a fairly good variety of sake.

      Thanks so much! Clunky site, but I should have thought to check their website. Looks like all the good stuff is currently out of stock. :(

    2. Just a guess, but Lo's in Portsmouth might carry some:

      There's also an Asian market in downtown Somersworth that might carry some?

        OK, So I was able to find some decent selections at the Portsmouth Liquor Store, thanks! I also figured out that the online inventory does NOT seem to be up to date with that particular store- not sure about other stores.

        Thanks also for the suggestion of Lo's. I have never seen sake in there but next time I go in I will ask.
