What is Sake?

Sake is easily recognized as a classic Japanese beverage. The national drink of the country, and a long-time favorite for many people, sake comes in the form of a milky liquor made from fermented rice. It is largely known as a rice wine, though the specific nature of sake is more difficult to define.

Indeed, it is hard to say whether sake is a wine or a beer. Though it is brewed from grains, as a beer is, its alcoholic content and its taste is more akin to that of a wine. Further, it is often enjoyed either chilled, warmed, or at room temperature, a quality that is not shared by conventional fruit-based wines.

However you may want to define sake, you can enjoy it at our Lynnwood Korean BBQ. Come and try this old classic either hot or cold at Arirang today!
