For the Sake of the World(日本酒の世界)

Japanese sake is becoming popular all over the world.

Thanks to its delicate fragrance and refined flavor, sake is becoming popular all over the world.Through a complicated brewing process the main ingredients of rice and water are turned into sake.

It’s often called “Rice Wine” because wine, too , is a drink made by fermentation. 

But while good wine depends largely on the quality of the grapes, its is said that a skillful brewer can make great sake even with rice that isn’t perfect.

The first time you sample sake, try drinking it chilled to around the same temperature you would enjoy white wine.

There’s no need to use a Japanese o-choko to drink sake.

A wine glass or tumbler will also let you appreciate the distinctive bouquet.

Sake is classified by ingredients and by how much the rice has been milled before brewing. A nice, light sake for the novice drinker would be daiginjo, which is made from rice that has been milled down to less than 50% of its original size.And sake goes very well with Western food.

Try it~~
