Sake has a rich history and is steeped in culture and tradition. It is a drink that has been enjoyed for centuries and continues to be enjoyed by people all over the world.
Sake is a type of Japanese rice wine made from fermented rice, water, and koji, a type of mold. It has a unique flavor that is distinct from other alcoholic beverages. The taste of sake can vary greatly depending on the type of rice, the brewing process, and the ingredients used.
