Japanese sake

Description of this category

If you are interested in learning more about the rich history of Japanese liquor, look for tours in this category. Sake is a type of wine made from fermented rice and has experienced somewhat of an international boom in recent years because it harmonizes with many foods. Sake can be enjoyed hot or cold, but the subtle taste changes when heating which is why most premium brands are best enjoyed cold or at room temperature. There are about 1,400 sake breweries and more than 10,000 sake brands in Japan, offering a huge variety of tastes. Many of these breweries can be visited and it is possible to taste their sake before purchasing. Guides will be able to introduce you to drinking etiquette and local customs which will make your sake experience even more special.
