Drinking and buying sake in Switzerland
Here are some Swiss restaurants, bars and shops where you can order sake to keep on discovering! If you have anything to add to the list please let me know.
There are also a number of online shops in the EU, but bear in mind that you will have to import the alcohol into Switzerland by having the post office or courier handle customs clearance for you or, if you live near an EU border, by using a parcel delivery service in the EU country, picking up your order and clearing customs yourself.
