History

Flavored Saké

The origins of sake remain veiled in mystery, adding to its allure and intrigue. It is believed that the art of fermenting rice into this beverage journeyed from China to Japan around 500 BCE. The first recorded mention of alcohol use in Japan can be traced back to the ancient pages of the Book of Wei. Throughout the Heian period, sake became intertwined with the fabric of Japanese life, gracing religious ceremonies, festive gatherings, and playful pastimes.

As centuries unfolded, the brewing of sake found a home within the walls of Buddhist temples Shinto shrines. For five hundred years, these sanctuaries became the beating heart of sake production, infusing the drink with spiritual significance and tradition. To truly unravel the intricate tapestry of sake's history and understand its profound cultural significance, one must embark on a journey through the history books!

Key Considerations

  1. Saké can be served hot, cold, or at room temperature, all of which can impact the flavor. Let us consult with you on how we can optimize your flavored saké to suit your desired serving temperature.
  2. Saké has a higher ABV than beer and wine. Beer is typically between 3-9%, wine is 9-16%, while Saké can be upwards of 18-20%!
  3. Saké can generally be categorized in two flavor profiles: fragrant (ginjo) or savory (non-ginjo).
