The 5 Best Japanese sake to Drink in 2022
What is Sake？
Sake is made like beer, but it is drunk like wine.
Sake without carbonic acid is close to wine in alcohol content and tastes similar to wine, so in recent years in Europe,
sake is sometimes drunk as shokuchu sake instead of wine.
Until a long time ago in Japan, the taste of sake was secondary to the standing position of sake for getting drunk,
but now the technique for making sake is different from the old days,
and the number of people who enjoy those tastes is increasing.

Harmony is more important than anything else, and matching the texture’s umami is more important.
