About Sake

Sake is the Western name for the Japanese alcoholic beverage brewed from polished rice. In Japanese, the drink is called nihonshu 日本 酒; the word sake is used in Japanese about all alcoholic beverages.

Sake can be compared to a wine, but the production method is more similar to beer brewing. The most common is to drink your sake cold and then the temperature should be the same as for white wine: 10–14º. When used as an aperitif, there is often even an ice cube in the glass.

The alcohol content is like wine and at most like strong wine. If you want to learn more about sake, book a sake tasting where you can learn all about this rice brew.

Sake is divided into simpler futsū-shu (普通 酒) and finer tokutei meishōshu (特定 名称 酒). The latter is classified in four degrees:

  • Honjōzō-shu (本 醸 造酒), with one ounce of alcohol added
  • Junmai-shu (純 米酒), without added alcohol and with 40% of the weight of the rice polished off.
  • Ginjō-shu (吟 醸 酒), without added alcohol and with 50% of the weight of the rice polished off.
  • Daiginjō-shu (大 吟 醸 酒), without added alcohol and with 60% of the weight of the rice polished off.
