Sake is the national drink of Japan. Often served with special ceremony – gently warmed in a small earthenware or porcelain bottle called a tokkuri, and sipped from a small porcelain cup called a sakazuki. Sake is arguably best enjoyed on its own either chilled or warm depending on the type of Sake and personal preference. Sake is an alcohol that is made from fermented rice brewed from four basic ingredients: sake rice, water, koji and yeast; the water used in brewing is one of the major factors that influences the impact and impression of a sake and the more the (Sake) rice is milled or polished down, the more smooth, elegant and refined the Sake.
