It is made from polished sake rice which is then fermented. The more polished the rice, and the more rice used, the more refined and aromatic the Sake. It is a social drink that is poured into short cups and enjoyed with nibbles or Japanese dishes and like wine, different Sakes match different types of food. Sake comes in many qualities from ring-pull containers made for one, to expensive, decades old Sake distilled in traditional wooden barrels, containing gold leaf or made from secret recipes.
