The rice‘s sweetness and UMAMI provides unique taste, very different from any other alcoholic beverages. Sake is made by a brewing method called multiple double fermentation, which requires advanced fermentation techniques unparalleled in the world, and is by far more difficult than making wine or beer.

WATER: Japan is rich in water resources due to its many mountains such as Mt.Fuji. And the TOP country in the world with cleanest tap water

RICE: Rice is produced by nearby farmers, and the varieties and regions of production produce very different tastes of sake.

KOJI: The main character in sake brewing. A kind of mold grown on rice. It is often called simply as KOJI in sake making.​

TECHNIQUE: The quality of the rice is affected by weather conditions, but the technique can keep the quality constant or even raise it above a certain level.
