Sake (Saki)

Photograph of Sake (Saki) under the microscope.

This unusual Japanese beverage is not really a spirit (it is not distilled) and not really a wine (it is not made from grapes), but most closely related to beer because it is fermented from rice. Sake is normally served very warm, because the heat releases the wide spectrum of flavors in the brew.
