Sake or nihonshu is a Japanese alcoholic beverage made from fermented rice. Sake is light in colour, non-carbonated, has a sweet flavour and is typically of a strong alcohol percentage (up to 18%). Sake is often mistakenly called a wine because of its appearance and alcoholic content, however, it is made in a two-step process similar to that for brewing beer. In Japan, where it is the national beverage, sake is often served with special ceremony – gently warmed in a small earthenware or porcelain bottle called tokkuri, and sipped from a small porcelain cup called a sakazuki.
