Sake is Japan’s brewed beverage. Made from rice, water, yeast and koji (mold), sake typically has an ABV of 15% (slightly above wine). Should sake be enjoyed cold or warm? Can it be paired this with pizza or pasta? Understanding different sake types, temperature, and vessels is the key to enjoying sake.
