Sake, often called “Japanese rice wine,” is an alcoholic beverage made from fermented rice and has a wide range of flavour, consistency and price. This special drink has a long, deep history rooted in Japanese culture, but outside of Japan, as a specialty drink, it’s still not well understood. For many international diners, sake remains a mystery; a beautiful, tasty, clear liquid that only has two questions to answer when ordering. Dry or sweet; and hot or cold? But of course to a true gourmet and aficionado sake is so much more than that.
