by Bottle Barn The Best Place to Buy Wine in Sonoma County
Sake, it’s not beer, wine, or spirit but is known as a rice-based Japanese drink and has been around for centuries. Sake is the oldest alcoholic drink in Japan, which has been around for over 1,000 years. However, it took until around the 1950s that this beverage transformed into what we know today--premium Sake such as Junmai Sake, but one question often comes up among Sake drinkers: what's the best Sake bottle to buy?

Sake has been gaining quite a bit of popularity over here in America, with many people not only trying it for the first time but also becoming regulars. But Sake can be a little intimidating for wine lovers and choosing the right one can be daunting sometimes. In this blog post, we'll explore the different types of sake bottles available on the market. So, whether you're a first-time sake drinker or a seasoned connoisseur, we will help you decide which one is right for you. Read on to learn more!

As Monica Samuels, a Sake Samurai and director of Sake and Spirits at Vine Connections, “Sake is built like a beer, but it drinks like a wine”. With an alcohol content at around 15-16% ABV and the ability to pair with food in ways that wines cannot because they lack tannins-sake make for a great alternative beverage, especially with salty foods!

The freshwater sources are responsible for producing this ancient beverage better and are often found at high altitudes where they can't be too far from rocks with pure mineral content-which will give you amazing sake when served correctly.

Japanese Sake has a long and diverse history, which can be seen in its vast array of styles. The brewer's secret to making such different sakes lies largely due to their various techniques for brewing them; many have been passed down over time- leaving you with an easy choice on what kind!

Polishing the rice is an important step in making sake because it allows getting rid of some unnecessary components. The more polished rice, the clearer nuances of fruit aromas come up, and the expensive final product for sure. 

3 general types of Junmai sake:-

There are 3 general types of sake in the classification system for Junmai Sakes (without added extra alcohol), Junmai, Ginjo, and Daiginjo. 

Junmai is the purest one and the rice used has been polished to at least 70 percent and, 

Ginjo, it’s a premium sake and has at least 60% polished rice, and 

Daiginjo, the most fruit-forward and elegant one, has at least 50% polished rice.
