Sake is Japan’s national drink. From the sushi bar round the corner to the top omakase restaurants you will find the word sake on the menu. But what is sake? It often gets translated as ‘rice wine’, even though it has more similar to beer. But the process of production is so unique it really has nothing in common with any other alcohol. Sake is its own thing. So if you want to know your junmai from your daiginjo or your kimoto from your yamahai join us on a journey through the history, production and flavours of this most poetic Japanese drink.
