What is sake?

 

What do you know about Sake? Made from rice? High alcohol content? Good with Japanese food only? The basic profile of sake by SSI (Sake Service Institute) International is "Fermented beverage produced from rice, rice koji (mold), and water" and its alcohol content should be below 22%. Actually the average alcohol content is around 15-16%, so it's almost same as wine. Interestingly, many people think it is strong like spirit but no, don't be scared!
