What is Sake?

In Japanese, the word of sake can mean any alcoholic beverage. But in English, people generally use it to mean a specific type of rice alcohol, also known as Nihonshu. In this page, I have categorized sake into 5 sections as Nihonshu, Shochu, Awamori, Umeshu and Japanese Beer. Here I explain the differences of each types of sake and I hope it will give you clearer idea of sake and lead you to the right directions for your needs.
