Sake is a fermented rice beverage made in Japan, and it's been around for more than 2,500 years. That means that sake has gone through more than two millennia of refinement, which makes it pretty special—and worth savoring.
Sometimes served hot, and sometimes it’s served cold, it’s that moderately boozy drink you get at sushi restaurants, sometimes in a two-for-one special during happy hour.
It's not just a Japanese thing anymore—sake is here to stay! And since it goes with everything from chicken to sushi to cheese curds, you'll never run out of excuses to grab a glass.
