Sake is known by foreigners as the rice wine of Japan. It is also called nihonshu, and is either served hot or cold. But it is not a wine or beer, and can have alcohol percentages of about 15 – 17%. It is not meant to be drank straight up, but sipped. Most high-grade sake is usually served cold, as heating it may harm its integrity. But for the cold winter months, most take it warm (not hot) to warm themselves. It has been produced since the 3rd century, and vary by region, alcoholic content, color, aroma, and taste. There are more than 1,800 sake breweries in Japan making about 10,000 varieties. Miyabi is a prized classic sake, but is expensive.
