Sometimes called Japanese rice wine, sake is an alcoholic beverage with a smooth, rich flavor made from fermented polished white rice. Despite the name "rice wine", sake is produced in a manner more similar to beer brewing but generally has an ABV of around 15%. Sake is made in a variety of styles, and is served hot, cold, or at room temperature. Most experts recommend that sweeter sake be served hot, while more complex, pricier sake should be served chilled. Different bottles of sake may be sweeter or may have a complex, earthy flavor, and can contain flavors reminiscent of flowers, spices, and fresh fruit. Sake has just as much delicious diversity as grape wine, so shop sake online at Country Wine & Spirits to learn how tasty this exciting Japanese spirit can be!
